Searching Eva is sort of a diary written by a young woman named Eva COLLÉ who is based in Berlin. Eva is the name she chose for herself as an immigrant. The director follows her daily life and records her blog diary entries into a documentary. The director shapes Eva, who can be considered an ‘Internet Personality,’ into an audiovisual form of SNS through ‘Instagram’ photos, videos, texts from followers’ comments, narration of posts, and sensational backgrounds. During the film, it is revealed Eva has multiple identities. She is a sex worker, part-time model, bisexual, artist, addict, and feminist. She cannot be bound or defined as one representative identity, and cannot be seen as a fixed entity. Her natural rejection of patriarchal disciplines, her acts of transforming everyday life into endless disguises and performances inversely exposes the social norm and the fiction of femininity that, ‘women must be like this.’ Searching Eva questions and explores the boundaries between documentary, feature film, and SNS, and interestingly poses the challenges of identity construction in the internet age.
