A film that is equally alluring and perplexing. Who wouldn't want to feel completely free to express themselves as they wish? But who would dare to share all of their life with the world? The importance of this film is probably in the questions it poses for anyone who can manage to stay with Eva for this trip towards salvation by putting her body, soul and time on the line for both personal and social cause.
Visually striking portrait of a Berlin-based sex worker-cum-social media micro-celebrity, Searching Eva examines how such forms of labour intersect with practices of self-(re)making particular to the Instagram age.
