Raw shakes the planet

The Croisette’s revelation go conquer the international public …

Focus World (Multiplatform of owned distribution and operated by Focus Features) has acquired the rights of the major territories in the world except France, Israel, Czech Republic and Slovakia, Benelux, Yugoslavia, Latin America, Greece, Australia and New Zealand.

Having shaken the Cannes Film Festival where the Julia Ducournau’s film, in competition at the Critics’ Week, won the FIPRESCI Prize for parallel sections (300 international critics Federation), in September Raw will be presented at the Toronto Film Festival (section Midnight Madness). This “wild and delightfully modern feminist fable” is preparing to seize the audience of the new continent. In the United States Raw will hit theaters in spring 2017.

In France, Wild Bunch will release the film the 15th March, 2017.

Everyone in Justine’s family is a vet. And a vegetarian. At 16, she’s a brilliant and promising student. When she starts at veterinary school, she enters a decadent, merciless and dangerously seductive world. During the first week of hazing rituals, desperate to fit in whatever the cost, she strays from her family principles when she eats raw meat for the first time. Justine will soon face the terrible and unexpected consequences of her actions when her true self begins to emerge…

Julia Ducournau was discovered in 2011 at the Critics’ Week in Cannes with his short film Junior. Raw is his first feature film.
