Eva is about to turn 33 and her decision to stay in Madrid in August has become an act of faith. The days and nights arise as times for opportunities, and during the open air  summer celebrations  Eva meets other people whom she tries to help, without realising that she is actually helping herself. La virgen de agosto  (‘The  August  Virgin’) is a diary film: the intimate journey of a woman in search of revelations; a rather philosophical  and  somewhat mystical summer story which is fun and festive from start to finish. 

Jonás Trueba is a director of feature and medium-lenght films and cowriter. His films have been nominated and awarded in numerous national and international film festivals. He juggles his career in cinema with teaching and since 2013 he has been a member of the Cine en Curso team, an educational project about cinema, and with cinema, in schools and colleges.
