Eva has been working with image and video since 1999, directing and editing, mainly in collaboration with Performing Arts creators. Since 2008 her interest in documentary has led her into the field of ethnographic survey. As a documentary maker, she highlights her perspective centered on both people and places, as well as on her approach to where each art project reveals its creative process. She began her main research on the dramaturgy and creative processes in the performing arts. More recently, her fieldwork has been focused on the discussion of educational practices, on how cinema is received by the public, and on the role of the spectator.
