Evelyn + Franklin Dow

October 15, 2018

Director of Photography Franklin Dow shot the documentary Evelyn, which premiered recently in London.

Director Orlando von Einsiedel – with whom Franklin also worked on the Oscar nominated doc The White Helmets – focuses the film on his own experience, and in particular the death of his brother a decade earlier, who suffering from schizophrenia and depression ended his own life.

He and his family set out on a hiking tour, visiting landscapes his sibling liked to walk, in order to address openly his loss – the beauty of the British landscape standing in contrast to the weight of the trauma at the heart of the film.

The film is already being acclaimed for its unique and direct tackling of the subject matter of male suicide, with The Guardian and also GQ among the publications which have lauded both its approach and filmmakers behind it.

Evelyn is part of the official Selection of the BFI London Film Festival 2018, as well as in competition for Best Documentary.
