Directed by Orlando von Einsiedel, 97 mins
Evelyn is a deeply personal film that documents 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.
Along the way, they are faced with the realities of a walking mission - camping, exhaustion, the wet and cold. Yet despite these, and the challenges that come with remembering what happened to Evelyn, there are moments of happiness and humour as they recall the good memories that they buried alongside the painful ones.
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.
