Director Biography – Naomi Evans (THE FERRYMAN)

Our film was created by all of us (three women from Scotland, England, and America), with no one role or individual given more weight than the other. As women, our creative process was open, kind, collaborative, professional, intense and fair. For efficiency, we divided the work within the roles of production, writing and directing. In working this way we committed some of our deepest and rawest emotions to film. We hope it brings something to all those we share it with.

Director Statement

The Ferryman is a short film about what happens in the moments leading up to death. Usually portrayed as a time we are desperate to forget. We look at life before death and beyond it but rarely at it, but in those final moments beauty can be found. In The Ferryman, we acknowledge the importance of these seminal moments – the moments of transition from life to death.
