Eva Collé is a Berlin-based model and sex worker who has dedicated her life to breaking taboos and challenging conventions. In an age where the constant presence of cameras exert a growing influence on how people present and understand themselves, Eva attempts to live a 100 % transparent life online. But how does this lack of privacy affect her on a psychological and emotional level? The intimate and highly stylized SEARCHING EVA explores questions of identity, performance and self in the 21st century.
