Depth of Field on Raw
Polina joins José Arroyo in a juicy discussion on Julia Ducournau’s Raw. The film, with its powerful female-gaze, portrays an exciting shift from the traditional female-monstrosity, and Ducournau’s representation of cannibalism is equally unusual. In this podcast episode we explore Ducournau’s intentions with these issues and debate her success, her dialogue with the genre, and fantastic visual style. The conversation leads us to investigate the various social themes the film tackles including alienation, identity politics, and the most prominent question of all: what it means to be human.
