Any Virgin Left Alive?

According to an English legend, Joan of Arc was not burnt at the stake. Instead, her eyes were burnt and she was deflowered by a British stallion as a punishment Blind and desperate, she spent the rest of her life looking for the last-living virgins, until she finally finds one…Even if she's not completely intact.

Bertrand Mandico


Bertrand Mandico was born in Tolosa in 1971 and graduated from the Gobelins animation school. He directed a dozen shorts films and in 2017 he debuted as director in the feature film The Wild Boys. His films (he usually shoots in 35mm and Super 16mm) catapult us into parallel, surrealistic, alienating universes, where exploitation films merge with the avant-garde and where posthumans and intersexuals rule the desolate scene.
