cinema movement: FRENCH PUNK QUEER WAVE

boyd van hoeij writes on the Hollywood reporter about 'titane' : "Looking at it alongside similarly adventurous out-there films – such as Ducournau's own cannibal-coming-of-age horror film, Raw, Zoé Wittock's Jumbo and Yann Gonzalez' You and the Night and Knife + Heart - one could almost speak of an exciting new current in Francophone cinema that plugs queer concerns into genre filmmaking in punky and transgressive ways. Call it the French Punk Queer Wave. Here, quite hardcore genre conventions are spiked with contemporary considerations of femininity, queerness and gender-bending to explore issues related to bodily intimacy and independence, sex and relationships in this new millennium."
