Searching Eva
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Searching Eva, dir. Pia Hellenthal, Germany 2019, English, Germand and Italian with English subtitles

A self-described drifter, queer, sex worker, Virgo, addict, feminist, model, social media maven, and housewife, Eva thrives on constantly subverting her own identity. 

Pia Hellenthal’s graphic debut film’s 25-year-old subject, Eva, slinks in and out of the frame, shape-shifting her image and controlling her narrative, upending our desire to peg her down and nestle into an easy-to-identify label.

Based in Berlin but also blowing up on Instagram, Eva posts and vlogs seemingly every aspect of her life. Her fans watch eagerly as she struts on the runway for Vetements, dons wigs for sex clients, and fluidly moves between men and women.

Searching Eva captures the elusive world of online celebrity: how a younger generation of people like Eva freely defines themselves in ways that feel both nakedly public and impossibly private.
