Empathy & Eternity

SET Peckham

About

Join us for a screening of Empathy & Eternity, a volunteer-led docufiction short filmed around Shropshire tracing the moving story of George Evans, a child evacuated to the area from Liverpool during WWII. The film examines his traumatising departure from Liverpool in 1939 and the incredible stories of discovery and nature in the local places he stayed and people he stayed with. It also retells the dramas that played out between his adoptive family and mother at home, the wider local historical environment in which this drama unfolded, and the passing of the torch across generations as his son embarks on a pilgrimage in his footsteps a decade after his death. A directorial debut from north west creative Cameron Evans, the research for and production of the film was supported by many members of local communities, and the event promises to be a powerful celebration of family, community and local identity following other screenings across the UK this summer. The evening will feature an introduction to the film by the director and a screening, followed by a Q&A, and time to have a drink and socialise afterwards, as well as to peruse some archival materials that Cameron will be bringing. It would be fantastic to see you there for what promises to be an inspiring evening!
