director: Emma Ishøy
original title: EVA - a visual essay on the female body
country: Denmark
year: 2021
running time: 9 min.

synopsis

Norms and artificial constructs regarding the body image have a negative impact mostly on women. In this liberating gesture of a documentary essay we can see not only a rich tapestry of human physicality, but also differences in our individuality and self-awareness. We are different not only in our looks, but also in the way we see, perceive and experience ourselves.

“A visual exploration of the female body and self-awareness, gently told by a variety of women using their own bodies as canvas.”
