French film director Julia Ducournau will be featured in an on-stage conversation presented by Austin Film Society on March 11th, following a screening of her first feature, “Titane”, with the support of Villa Albertine and Unifrance.
Julia Ducournau examines gender and the pressures of automation in her highly stylized and original vision of a woman who is part machine. TITANE made Ducournau the second woman in history to win the coveted Cannes Palme d’Or.
We will be joined by Cannes Palme d’Or Winner Julia Ducournau for a special screening of TITANE followed by an extended discussion.
