The screening will feature a Q&A with members of film team & family, after which audiences will be invited on a "walk and talk" in the local area, starting out of the cinema doors. These walks are organised in partnership with the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) and The Ramblers.
EVELYN is a deeply personal documentary from the Academy Award® winning team behind THE WHITE HELMETS (2016) and VIRUNGA (2014). The film follows the story of a family overcoming the unthinkable. On a walking odyssey across the United Kingdom, they confront a past they’ve been unable to talk about, whilst simultaneously repairing the fractures in their own relationships. Director Orlando von Einsiedel turns the cameras on himself, as he and his parents and siblings embark on a journey in remembrance of their brother and son, Evelyn, who took his own life over a decade ago. Part quest film, part road-trip, part memoir, EVELYN seeks to address the past, in order to find some peace in the present, and look to the future.
