Watch “THE AUGUST VIRGIN” Q&A’s with Director & Co-writer Joan Trueba and Lead Actress & Co-writer Itsaso Arana Here

Up-and-coming Spanish filmmaker Jonás Trueba’s new film, The August Virgin (La virgen de agosto), is a perfect summer movie, an Éric Rohmer-esque love letter to Madrid and affairs of the heart.

Eva (played by the film’s co-writer, the luminescent Itsaso Arana) is about to turn 33. Her decision to stay in Madrid in the sweltering month of August, when most of the city’s inhabitants flee, is something of a leap of faith – she’s in search of herself and her own life. The neighborhoods around her are bursting with traditional Saint’s Days parties and celebrations, while she encounters a series of old friends and lovers, and meets some new ones. A former boyfriend who still pines for her, a young mother who Eva’s lost touch with, a sexy Welsh guy with a thing for anti-fascist songs, a Reiki therapist who wants to align her female energies, and a new possible love interest, are just a few of the characters that fill her month of revelations, regrets and discoveries.  The August Virgin is the journey of one woman, a dreamy, sensual summer story of delayed coming of age, dancing in the streets, and good conversation. With music from and an appearance by well-known Spanish singer Soleá Moreno.

North American release of “The August Virgin” is made possible in part through the support of the Tourist Office of Spain
