Cock, Cock.. Who's There? is an unsettling, touching and private documentary performance of a young woman's research into intimacy and violence. Through online platforms and close encounters Samira Elagoz takes the audience on her journey of regaining power. She showcases gender relations in all their ambivalence, experimenting with the empowerment of her own sexuality and attempts to relating to men.

 

 

“ ( * * * * ) …She assembles and edits all this into a film that is as raw-realistic as it is frivolous, as moving as it is funny, as dramatic as it optimistic. “ - Knack Magazine

 

 

“…Elagoz's self-presentation very intelligently exposes a taboo subject.” - De Standaard
