The Dezoteux brothers were resident at Lafayette Anticipations - Fondation d'entreprise Galeries Lafayette, from January to June 2014. The artists continued developing certain specific projects at the Testers’ Salon. At the same time, they started working on new creations.
For Cloud Berry, Arnaud and Bertrand took inspiration from the world of filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowsky and their film Cloud Atlas. They exported the concept to the Berry region, asking residents to take on multiple roles, going from periods of the past to future times. Extracts of the film were presented at the Altkirsch International Film Festival in Alsace, 12-14 April 2014. Inspired by the blockbuster “Cloud Atlas”, directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski, “Cloud Berry” is the casting of a hypothetical science fiction film which takes place between prehistory and the future. Seventy amateur actors were auditioned in Bourges in November 2013. The camera captured their improvisations, their skill at creating characters in front of a blue-screen. Their time at Lafayette Anticipation, Fondation d'entreprise Galeries Lafayette's residency was used for post-production and editing of the film, to carry out tests, and to create virtual environments to reinforce the performances of the participants. A coproduction Baldanders Films and Bandits-Mages, with the support from the Région Centre.
