JULIA DUCOURNAU: RAW
Coinciding with the Second Chance Cinema return of her Palme d’Or-winning new thriller Titane we are thrilled to bring back to our cinema the coming-of-age cannibal awakening that put her on the map as a writer/director to watch, Raw.
Featuring and winning at Cannes, Toronto and London Film Festivals (to name a few), Raw is the film that has shocked and delighted audiences and critics alike. Raw follows Justine, a brilliant and promising student. When she starts at veterinary school, she enters a decadent, merciless and dangerously seductive world. During the first week of hazing rituals, desperate to fit in whatever the cost, she strays from her family principles when she eats raw meat for the first time. Justine will soon face the terrible and unexpected consequences of her actions as her true self begins to emerge.
