In the wake of her debut, Raw, Julia Ducournau has decided to kick things into even higher gear: Titane tells the story of Alexia, a young woman who as a child had a titanium plate implanted in her head following a car crash. Now, she is fetishistically attracted to metal objects. On the run from the police, she pretends to be a young man, and soon is recognized and taken in by an old firefighter as his missing son. A treatise on identity and gender, machines and flesh, Titane ignites the next rocket stage in the body horror cosmos. It is a visionary provocation with unexpectedly tender undercurrents—as profound as it is vulgar. A timely movie for the ages, and rightful winner of this year’s Cannes Palme d’Or.

Julia Ducournau
Ducournau, Julia A screenwriting graduate from La fémis in Paris, Julia gained attention in 2011 when her short Junior was selected for the Cannes Critics' Week. She returned there in 2016, winning the FIPRESCI prize with Raw, an upsetting horror film with strong feminist and social metaphors, which went on to be screened and win awards at festivals like Toronto, Sundance, or Sitges and was released in cinemas worldwide. Julia once again returned to Cannes in 2021 with her second feature Titane, winning one of the highest accolades in filmmaking, the Palme d'Or.
