Julia Docournau's follow-up to Raw -- Titane -- has won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Julia is only the second woman in history to win the award. The body-horror thriller follows a serial killer impregnated by a car who disguises her gender by going incognito as a fireman's long-lost son. Critics raved about the film, calling it one of the wildest to ever screen at the festival.
Neon will distribute stateside, but no date has been announced. It has already been released in France.
Jury president Spike Lee did a goof and announced the film won at the beginning of the award ceremony, when it always comes last.
