In a very special episode of XOXO Horror, Joe and Valeska have a *brief* 10 minute conversation with Titane director Julia Ducournau about her Palme d’Or winning film. Mild spoilers ahead.

In the chat, Ducournau discusses Alexia’s journey, why it made sense to use minimal dialogue, how the dance scenes reflect the characters’ journeys, how she made the actors comfortable during the explicit/nude scenes and why she uses many different genres to describe her films.
