After living through the traumatic experience of being raped, Samira Elagoz created a highly personal research project spanning three continents, looking at the behaviour of men in their attempts at seduction. Her method – meet strangers on the internet and film the evolution of their relationship. Friendship, tenderness, seduction, mythomania, disorientation and violence – Samira Elagoz deconstructs, through her dating, male performance and the clichés of gender relations in all their ambivalence, trying to regain her own power of self-determination in her relations with men.
Beyond all rhetoric and moralism, Cock, Cock… Who’s There? examines the full spectrum of male-female relations from intimacy to brutality, and takes the public on a voyage through desire, feminine power and female perspectives in a world in which the virtual and the real are inextricably interlaced.
