Jonás Trueba: Fragile and fatal

Los Ilusos (Los Ilusos)
Cinematography by: Santiago Racaj | Directed by: Jonás Trueba | Spain | 2013 | 93 min

A film about filmmakers who are not shooting at the moment. A film about lost time, endless conversations and going to the cinema. A tribute to the French new wave, which does not imitate mechanically, but uses low-budget productions, 16mm cameras and improvisations to capture the lives, desires and problems of young people in contemporary Spain.

The August Virgin (La virgen de agosto)
Cinematography by: Santiago Racaj | Directed by: Jonás Trueba | Spain | 2019 | 125 min

In the hot summer months, when locals retreat from the unbearable heat in their homes, only tourists and a handful of the brave remain in the centre of the Spanish capital. And those who are grasping for something in life. Which is true for the charming main character, Eva, in her thirties. The August Virgin is a kind film set during the August city festivities, full of fleeting meetings, relaxed atmosphere of evening calls and unexpected nights. Time passes as if nothing had happened. And yet.
