Searching Eva (2019)

When in 1996 the lyricist of The Grateful Dead announced that Cyberspace will bring “a civilization of the Mind“, F. was four years old. A few years later she declared privacy as an outdated concept, renamed herself Eva and published her first diary entry online. Quickly Eva became an Internet star, allowing the world to watch her grow up. Today Eva is in her early twenties, fluctuating between her offline life, where she recently defined herself an anarchist vagabond and a feminist sex worker and her online persona, iconified as an archetype of authenticity.

Searching Eva 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”.

Searching Eva floats between artificial staging and documentary observation, combining Eva’s blog – which leads as a voice over through her online published introspection – with everyday scenes, always followed by her online fans.
