Nico is a naive twenty year old that is determined to finally lose his virginity at a New Year's party. When mature Medea invites him to her place, his dreams seem to have come true, but they turn into a bizarre nightmare instead.
Blood, sweat and a variety of other bodily fluids fly in all directions and nothing is sacred in this over-the-top, relentless and hilarious splatter-comedy, decribed by critics as »Braindead remade by Pedro Almodóvar«. The Night of the Virgin is currently the hottest genre festival hit that has already received a respectable amount of awards.
Roberto San Sebastián has made 3 succesfull short films (Cumpleaños Feliz, Agujero in Yayos) that have been screened at numerous national and international festivals. The Night of the Virgin is his first feature film.
Kevin Iglesias is co-founder of Platanoboligrafo, a recognized short-film production company based in Bilbao, Basque Country. His productions have been screened at300 festival selections and won 40 awards in the last three years.
