Ducournau’s Raw (2016) is presented with her short film Junior (2011).

About the film:

Winner of the 2015 FIPRESCI Prize at Cannes Film Festival.

At 16, Justine is a brilliant, promising student and a strict vegetarian. But when she starts veterinary school, she quickly encounters a decadent, merciless and dangerously seductive world. Desperate to fit in during the first week of hazing rituals, she strays from her principles and eats raw meat for the first time and faces the terrible and unexpected consequences of her actions as her true self emerges.

“It often takes decades for filmmakers to strike the right sense of balance Ducournau has achieved with Raw, and she is a director and writer with a formidable grasp.”

—Alexandria Heller-Nicholas, The Blue Lenses

About the filmmaker:

Julia Ducournau was born in Paris and studied screenwriting at La Fémis and Columbia University. Her work as writer-director includes the 2012 TV movie Mange, the short Junior (2011), and her debut feature Raw (2016) which received the Fipresci Prize at the 2015 Cannes Critics’ Week. Ducournau became the second woman in history to win the Palme d’Or with her second feature film Titane (2021), a provocative look at gender and sexuality.
