Evelyn is a deeply personal film from Academy Award® winning filmmakers of The White Helmets and Virunga, first screened at the 2018 London Film Festival, and showing at the Café at The ORTUS – Camberwell, 82-96 Grove Lane, SE5 8SN on Friday 26 April 2019 at 7pm.
It is the story of how a family survives the unthinkable. Fourteen years after the suicide of their son and brother, Evelyn, the family decide to walk the length of the UK and try to talk about him – something they had failed to do in over a decade.
This poetic feature documentary explores the fabric of grief and the longevity of love. Part quest film, part road-trip, part memoir, Evelyn is an exposition of the taboos of mental health and male emotion, and a tribute to our times.
Refreshments will be for sale before the screening from Café at The ORTUS.
Free event. No booking needed. Arrive early to secure a seat.
