The acclaimed feature documentary Evelyn directed by the Oscar-winning Orlando von Einsiedel picked up the BIFA for Best Documentary on Sunday night.
Awarded 4 star reviews by The Guardian, Indiewire and Culture Fly, Evelyn follows von Einsiedel’s family as they go on a pilgrimage in honour of their brother, who committed suicide thirteen years earlier. An examination of one family’s grief as well as a study in addressing mental health, Evelyn is an incredibly important piece of work that encourages its audience to think, contemplate and discuss mental health.
