Searching Eva

  • Germany
Audio Tracks 

Eva – 25, drifter, Berliner, poet, pet-owner, sex worker, virgo, recovering addict, housewife, feminist, model – declared privacy an outdated concept at the age of 14.

This is the tale of a young woman growing up in the age of the internet, turning the search for oneself into a public spectacle, challenging you on what a woman „should be“. Through her fragmented personalities you see the emergence of a generation, in which the concept of a fixed identity has grown old.

A portrait of modern existence.
