Director: Julia Ducournau

"Our world cinema offerings this year have brought us some outstanding performances so far, and this is no exception. Directed by relative newcomer Julia Ducournau, Raw is a coming of age come cannibalistic tale of a young girl's induction into veterinary school. Fellow newcomer Garance Marillier gives a phenomenal performance in her starring role, alongside yet another newbie, Ella Rumpf. Not for the faint-hearted, famously causing several audience members to faint at its premiere, Raw certainly requires a strong stomach. If you're up to the challenge, its well worth the indigestion."
