FRONTLINE / Coping with Grief: Evelyn + Live Q&A & Walk

This screening will feature a Q&A with members of the film team, 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.

When his brother, newly diagnosed as schizophrenic and suffering from intense depression, took his own life at 22, Orlando and his other two siblings buried the trauma, rarely talking about it. Over a decade later, the remaining family set out on a hiking tour, visiting landscapes Evelyn liked to walk, to reflect on his life and death. The result is an intensely personal and moving take on the emotional impact of suicide within a family and a powerful account of the benefits of creating safe spaces for emotional communication. Winner of a BIFA for Best Documentary 2018 and shot in a subjective style against the stunning backdrop of the British countryside, Evelyn is an emotionally raw film at documents the difficult, yet rewarding, attempt to navigate the rocky highlands of collective trauma.
