Lynne Ramsay whose intense 2017 thriller You Were Never Really Here and stunning We Need to Talk About Kevin have shattered conventions, visits the festival with her debut feature, Ratcatcher, which premiered at the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes. Reconstructing the British social realism genre, Ratcatcher is set in the 1970s, in Glasgow, Scotland. Observing children’s world through an extraordinarily dark and sharp lens, the film follows the 12-year-old James, who lives with his working class parents in a rundown apartment. Inspired by her hometown Glasgow for her debut, Ramsay will head the jury of the International Competition at this year’s Festival.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
