"E V O is a visually daring documentary look at evolutionary theory that comes off like a university course in paleobiology as taught by Marshall McLuhan." Monday Magazine

"A playful, fiercely intelligent exploration of the history and future of evolutionary theory and its impact on human society...Packed with striking concepts and intricately composed imagery, E V O, hums with energy and insight." Vancouver International Film Festival - Elan Mastai

Produced with the Participation of: The Canada Council for the Arts, and The Alberta Foundation for the Arts.

The brainchild of Oliver Hockenhull (Aldous Huxley: The Gravity of Light), the eerie and often beautiful EVO builds from footage of renowned scholars discussing Darwin's theories and the famed Burgess Shale... If this seems a tad dry, its treatment verges on the wild: much of the material gets an impressionistic visual treatment as it segues into provocative speculations involving politics, genetics and wormholes.
