In Come Here Come Here (2019), which lends its title from the fingering technique to achieve a g-spot orgasm, Schmitz takes you on a journey of discovery through the many theories and imagery concerning female sexual pleasure, a subject that has risen in popular culture; clitoris art and female ejaculation workshops are trending. But how to navigate through this flood of information that all present different truths?
As a poetic manifesto for a more plural understanding of female sexuality, this associative film interweaves experts’ and sexologists’ knowledges with the director’s own fantasies, memories and confusions: by whom is sexual knowledge produced? How to represent the unrepresentable? How to bring the inside out?
