Pia Hellenthal

Eva – 25, a drifter, a Berliner, poet, pet-owner, sex worker, Virgo, recovering addict, housewife, feminist, model – declared privacy an outdated concept at the age of 14. This 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 about what a woman ‘should be’. Through her fragmented personalities you see the emergence of a generation, in which the concept of a fixed identity has grown old. A portrait of modern existence.
