Documentary in which Oscar-winning film-maker Orlando von Einsiedel examines the effect that the suicide of his schizophrenic younger brother Evelyn has had on his family.

A deeply personal film from the Academy Award-winning team behind Virunga (2014) and The White Helmets (2016). Fourteen years after the suicide of their son and brother Evelyn, director Orlando von Einsiedel and his 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.
