Initially coined by critic James Quandt the New French Extremity is a term used to distinguish a loosely connected group of French directors at the end of the twenty-first century who sought to explore how the rise of violence and sexual transgression in film and television during the twentieth century had affected society as a whole.

This fall, MAD takes a look back on this recent moment in film history in order to survey some of its most significant directors and works. J’Adore Violence: Cinema of the New French Extremity highlights influential films that has sparked debate throughout the Cannes Film Festival and elsewhere for decades.
