Watch Junior, the first film by Julia Ducournau (Titanium), available on YouTube

With Garance Marillier, the future star of Grave, 13 years old at the time.

Julia Ducournau  has just won the Palme d’Or with her second feature film, Titane . But the story of the French director and the Festival does not date from yesterday. In 2016, she was already causing a sensation with Grave , at the Semaine de la critique. And in 2011, when she was only 27, she presented her first short film, Junior , with her favorite actress Garance Marillier. 

Like Grave and Titane , Junior explores the theme of the body and transformation. It tells the story of 13-year-old Justine, a tomboy girl who undergoes a strange metamorphosis after being diagnosed with severe gastroenteritis. Unifrance has uploaded this short 21-minute film for free on its YouTube channel, until August 21, 2021.
