Palme d’or awarded for Titane in 2021, Julia Ducournau has established herself on the front scene of cinema thanks to her powerful and somewhat disturbing works. Her unique approach of genre cinema enables her to transcend taboos. After graduating from La Fémis, where she studied screenwriting she presented in Cannes in 2011 her short film Junior, which won awards in many Festivals. Her first feature film, Raw, allowed her to gain international recognition: it was awarded the FIPRESCI prize in 2016 and was presented at La Semaine de la Critique, Toronto and Sundance Festivals. In 2020, she directed two episodes of the American series Servant, created by M. Night Shyalaman. In 2022 she directed two episodes of the Apple series The New Look featuring Juliette Binoche and Ben Mendelsohn, which is soon to be released. She is currently working on her own series in the US with A24 TV and her next feature film.
