About the Film
Although she is a swimmer, Eva was unable to save her brother from nearly drowning at sea. He now lies in a coma and her cold relationship with her mother is not helping Eva's conscience either. She stumbles upon a mysterious puddle in her bathroom, which takes her to the depths of the sea. As her mother looks for Eva, she only finds a puddle of water that she starts to wipe away.
Before she started her bachelor studies in Switzerland, Xheni Alushi (1991) worked for a project office at the Albanian ministry of culture. She came about film when she worked on short film productions at the Academy of the Arts in Tirana, Albania. She loves to write short stories. The script for EVA is developed out of one of these stories. EVA is her first work as a director.
