Gimme Some Truth: Crave Hot Docs Showcase: Searching Eva

Wed, Nov 6 / 7 pm
Directed by Pia Hallenthal
2019, Germany, 85 min
German, Italian, English with subtitles

Eva – 25, drifter, Berliner, poet, pet-owner, sex worker, virgo, addict, housewife, feminist, model – declared privacy outdated at 14. This tale of a woman growing up in the age of the internet, turning the search for self into public spectacle, challenging what a woman “should be“, shows, through her fragmented personalities, the emergence of a generation, where the idea of fixed identity has withered.

Plays with: Hyper-Distracted: Bible Camp Memories / Directed by Damien Ferland, 2019, 15 min / Damien revisits his experiences at Bible Camp from the ages of 11 to 13. He couldn’t fit in at school, but maybe he might fit in at camp? Bible camp???

Presented in partnership with Crave Hot Docs Showcase.

Reviews

The life of a sex worker is dreamily examined in Searching Eva, which expertly doubles up as a skilled portrait of the millennial generation. Mixing text with voiceover, fashion shoot-like portraiture with fly-on-the-wall observation, it’s a provocative and strange documentary that captures what it’s like to live outside the conventional norms of society.
