Screening as part of our Women in Genre: Horror Season

strong gory images, injury detail

Every now and again a debut film comes along that makes you sit up and recognize a major new talent has announced itself. That’s Raw, and that’s director Julia Ducournau.

When Justine (Garance Marillier) goes to veterinary school, the young vegetarian is forced, in a hazing ritual, to eat some raw meat. That bite awakens something deep inside of her, and suddenly she is transformed from a meek nerd into a ravenous, sexually confident cannibal.

Raw weaves themes of addiction, female coming of age and sexual exploration into a bloody tapestry that drenches the screen in sheer cinematic glory.
