The title and the jumping-off point of this exceptional thriller are deceptively simple: Woman meets man, he soon crosses a line, causing her to run and him to go after her. But Hunted subverts many expectations: Here, Vincent Paronnaud has fun thwarting the gender clichés and power relations we’ve all grown accustomed to in the revenge-thriller subgenre—and puts them in a broader context. The deep dark woods where much of this nail-biter is set, plays by its own rules. Once all the layers of civilization are stripped away, the animalistic urges are free to roam—and the blood starts spurting, limbs start flying, all inhibitions are lost, and primal drives reign supreme. A masterful slice of genre filmmaking, perfectly spiced with the art of subversion.

Vincent Paronnaud
a.k.a Winshluss is a self-taught all-rounder who has been working in the arts for more than 25 years. Somewhere between Walt Disney, Todd Browning, and Philippe Vuillemin, he fantasized about supermarkets, amusement parks, museums, zombie movies, and animation studios, perverting and magnifying them all. He successfully worked as comic book author, creating the famous character Mister Scrap Iron (Monsieur Ferraille) and a comic book parody of the Bible, among other award-winning comic productions. Since 2003, he has made six short and medium length films in both live-action and animation. But it’s mostly two feature length films coauthored with Marjane Sartrapi that made him popular in the movie sector: Persepolis received the Special Price of the Cannes festival jury in 2007, the Caesar of the best first film and best adaptation in 2008, and got nominated for the Oscars. It was be followed by Plum Chicken (Poulet aux prunes), adapted from the comic book by Sartrapi. In 2013 he shot Territory (Territoire), a western set in the Pyrenees of the 1960s.
