After her cannibalistic debut Raw (Cannes 2016 – FIPRESCI Award), in her second feature Julia Ducournau once again examines the boundaries of horror film, this time a Cronenberg-style body horror. Titane is a dark, roguishly twisted fantasy, immersed in neon, violence and sex, following a young girl after a severe car accident. Alexie is fitted with a metal plate in her skull after which she undergoes a complete psychological transformation and becomes obsessed with cars. The film won the Palme d’Or at Cannes, making Ducournau only the second woman in history to win the prestigious award.
