Director's Statement

Evelyn & Elmer is a sentimental tale of an unexpected encounter at a riverbank between a little girl and an elderly man (Elmer), who is there to scatter his wife’s ashes.

I wanted to create a poignant yet uplifting, visually striking film. The location was chosen for it’s beauty and was complimented by artistic cinematography, emotionally stirring music and rich vibrant colors.

The relationship between Elmer and the little girl is heartfelt and touching and is a reminder that love moves in mysterious ways.

It was important to me to have a diverse cast and our crew was predominantly female and included members of the LGBQT community.
