“Destabilizing mainstream notions of female pleasure.”
”The film acts as a sort of choral manifesto for another understanding of female sexuality.”
Have you ever seen a bird with red wings? How to become a multi-orgasmic woman? What is squirting? How to become a multi-orgasmic woman? Schmitz had many questions concerning female pleasure, ‘hidden’ anatomy, and its imaging. What is there to know and how do we get to know it? Where is sexual knowledge produced? Her search comes together in this mischievous and (anti-)climactic assemblage of expertises, theories, fantasies, memories and confusions; how to represent the unrepresentable? Where do sponges come from? Is to see, to know, to feel?
With a.o. artist/researcher Isabel Burr Raty, sexshop owner Hanni Jagtman, sexologist Liesbeth Schillemans and artist/experience expert Ilona West.
