Rolling Stone Lauds "The Rise of the Modern Female Horror Filmmaker"
Raw's writer/director Julia Ducournau is front and center as RS looks at the future of horror storytellers.
"A young guy in a festival audience told me that it was nice to have women in the genre because it brought some 'softness'...Softness? Have you seen my movie?" says Julia Ducournau.
She elaborates with "When you make horror, it's the expression of a form of violence that you feel inside of you - and it's important we recognize that women feel violence and anger as well."
Phoebe Reilly presents a great overview of skilled filmmakers including Jennifer Kent (The Babadook), Karyn Kusama (The Invitation) and of course Ducournau.
