Along with Garrel’s debut feature Le révélateurThe Virgin’s Bed is the director’s “Zanzibar” film, part of an extraordinary series of films produced by young patron of the arts Sylvina Boissonnas, made in the unrest of May 1968 in France by Garrel, Jackie Raynal, Patrick Deval, Frédéric Pardo, and Daniel Pommereulle, who called themselves the Zanzibar group.
