World Mental Health Day Screening: Evelyn

Thursday, 10th October ,2019 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Wigan Council and The Old Courts are working together this World Mental Health Day to present EVELYN Evelyn is a deeply personal documentary from the Academy Awardå winning team behind. The White Helmets (2016) and (2014).

The film follows the story of a family survives the unthinkable. Fourteen years after the suicide of their son and brother, Evelyn, the family decides to walk the length of the UK and try to talk about him – something they had failed to do in over a decade.

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, seeks to address the past, in order to find some peace in the present, and look to the future.

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.
