SEARCHING EVA, GER 2019, Documentary, Original version /w German subtitles
D: Pia Hellenthal

With Eva Collé The boundaries between private and public space are blurred in Eva's life. The young woman meticulously records the events of her eclectic life via social media, providing a provocatively intimate insight into her ever-transforming identities. Not only are the boundaries between the private and the public fluid - Eva herself is constantly reshaping herself: as a queer author, self-determined sex worker, model, feminist, world traveler or rock star.
