“A dazzling high-wire act.” — The Hollywood Reporter

The acclaimed filmmaking team of director Kornél Mundruczó and writer Kata Wéber (Academy Award nominated Pieces of a Woman 2020) return with a powerful drama tracing three generations of a family, beginning with a surreal moment in World War II and ending in modern day Berlin. Through each generation the family members grapple with the immense challenges of attempting to process their past in a society still coping with the wounds of its history.  

Like the water that connects the episodes in this triptych, memory and identity are fluid, and how we relate to it can drown or buoy. The pain and stigma that trickles from Eva, to Lena and then Jonas is inexpressible, yet rendered with striking imagery by Mundruczó and a wrenchingly poignant yet acerbically ironic and personal script by Weber. While generational traumas find new expression in the present, the family in Evolution looks towards a more hopeful future. 

Presented by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Canberra.
