Evolution (2015)
First screened in September 2015
Director: Lucile Hadžihalilović. Cast: Max Brebant, Julie-Marie Parmentier, Roxane Duran, Nissim Renard, Mathieu Goldfeld, Nathalie Legosles, Pablo-Noé Etienne. Screenplay: Lucile Hadžihalilović, Alanté Kavaïté, and Geoff Cox.

Twitter Capsule: What if Matthew Barney and Jacques Cousteau co-directed a YA dystopia? I couldn't imagine, but Lucile Hadžihalilović did.

VOR:   Female-authored fantasy parables are never in abundant supply. Nor are directorial visions this outré. Not as unprecedented or as fully developed as it might be, but creative.
