EVIE is a sci-fi short film sponsored by Directors UK and ARRI through the Alexa Challenge scheme, and by the Genera Film Fund.
It's Arlo's sixteenth birthday and his older brother has an unusual gift for him. EVIE imagines a universe where teenage boys, under pressure to lose their virginity and demonstrate sexual prowess, may turn to sex robots.
EVIE premiered at Encounters Film Festival in September and has screened - so far - at two further BAFTA and Academy Award qualifying festivals, Cambridge Film Festival and St Louis International Film Festival, among others.
