EVELYN + Q&A

Dir: Orlando von Einsiedel
United Kingdom / 2018 / 95mins

Director Orlando von Einsiedel turns the camera on himself in this deeply personal film, as he and his siblings embark on a journey in remembrance of their brother, Evelyn, who took his own life over a decade ago.

Stunned by grief, the family buried the trauma and never talked about Evelyn after his death, until now, thirteen years on, they begin a trek through the British countryside that their brother loved. Joined en route by their parents and friends, for the first time the siblings begin to discuss the past and address the long-buried pain together.

Bravely bringing his personal life and grief in front of the camera, the Oscar-winning director of Virunga and The White Helmets takes us on a cathartic journey, which feels much more like a beginning than an ending, inviting us to consider not just the nature of grief and family dynamics, but the treatment of mental illness and the stigma of suicide.

This one-off screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and contributors.
