Event description

Description

This is a free event, with a screening of the film 'Evelyn' for World Mental Health Day 2019. It is being held to raise awareness of mental health and suicide prevention in our local communities, and to encourage open and honest conversations about difficult emotions amongst friends and family members. There will be information and resources available at the event about sources of support, a short talk by the organiser of this event after the film, and a space for conversations afterwards.

'Evelyn' (2018) is a deeply personal film from the Academy Award winning team of filmmakers of The White Helmets (2016) and Virunga (2014). Fourteen years after the suicide of their son and brother Evelyn, director Orlando von Einsiedel and his family decide to walk in parts 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.
