Short film 35mm Premiered at Locarno Film Festival
Written and Directed by Edouard Gétaz
He came back guilty: Juan's life takes a turn for the worse after he gets dragged into a situation which leads to an insurgent's death.
VIRGIN RED raises some fundamental issues in a provocative and emotional manner: How do we judge the innocence of those who take part in war? What price are we ready to pay in terms of human consequences?
The story is inspired by true events. Swiss director Edouard Gétaz consulted extensively with Kevin Mervin, author of UK bestseller Week-end Warrior (the diary of a UK soldier during Golf War II). The film was shot in an abandoned US military base, with special permission of the Brooklyn Navy
