Evelyn + Q&A with members of the film team and contributors
Tue 15 Jan 20:35 NFT1
UK 2018. Dir Orlando von Einsiedel. 99min. Digital. 12A. Courtesy of Violet Films. Audio Description available.
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 documentary on the emotional impact of suicide within a family and a powerful account of the benefits of creating safe spaces for emotional communication. Shot in a subjective style and against the stunning backdrop of the British countryside, Evelyn is an emotionally raw film that documents the difficult, yet rewarding, attempt to navigate the rocky highlands of collective trauma.

We're delighted to add this screening of Roma - recently voted no. 1 in Sight & Sound's Films of the Year 2018, and winner of Best Foreign Language Film and Best Director at the Golden Globes - to the BFI Southbank programme:
Roma
Thu 17 Jan 18:15 NFT1
Mexico 2018. Dir. Alfonso Cuarón. With Yalitza Aparicio, Marina de Tavira. 135min. Digital. EST. 15. Courtesy of Netflix.
Mexico City, 1970. Cleo (Yalitza Aparicio) is a live-in domestic worker of Mixteco heritage. She is employed by middle-class mother of four Sofía (Marina de Tavira), who struggles to cope with the extended absence of her doctor husband. Cleo loves the children as if they are her own, but her duties leave little time for her to have an independent life. That's the premise of this personal project by master filmmaker Cuarón (who wrote, produced, directed, shot and co-edited the film). Every detail is thoughtful and painstakingly recreated; aided by production designer Eugenio Caballero, Cuarón reveals this era of Mexico City as a place teeming with vibrant life, from its cinema and music to the brewing radicalism of the political scene. They conjure a tantalisingly specific moment, with the space race unfolding overhead as class violence and student radicalism erupt on the streets. But this is also very much a film about the home, a place of women and children, with the domestic space revealing much about cultural attitudes to class, race and gender relationships. Throughout, the densely textured sound design adds another layer to both narrative and mood - close your eyes and you will know your location in every space. Luminous, heart-wrenching and ultimately life-affirming, this is Cuarón's love letter to Cleo and the women who raised him with love and tenderness.
Tricia Tuttle, Director BFI Festivals.
