«This adventure was the richest, the most intense experience of my life.» (Eduardo, social worker – Lausanne)

TAPIS ROUGE is a journey into another world. The world of a social worker whose enthusiasm will lead to a very tricky situation. A journey that will shake his beliefs and values… but for the best. In the end, they will all experience the most exciting trip ever…

More than a movie, a life experience

In the beginning, we met a group of kids who really wanted to make a film. TAPIS ROUGE was inspired by this.

We taught the kids a week of improvisation class and wrote the screenplay based on our work. The kids were then ready for a dream come true: acting in a movie. Most of them going through a lot of trouble, it was a boat not to be missed…

A road movie halfway between fiction and reality

Supported by an extremely talented and genuine non-actor youth, an experienced comedian, a diligent acting direction and two reliable social workers, TAPIS ROUGE was going to be made. But we had to make it happen within 2 weeks because Cannes Film Festival was happening then and impossible to be rescheduled… This screenplay is based on the true story of our protagonists.

Excerpt

Avec des acteurs naturels aux talents cachés, un comédien expérimenté, une mise en scène assidue et des éducateurs pour nous conseiller, les ateliers d’improvisation ont permis de tout mettre en place pour le tournage/voyage. Et cela en deux semaines car le festival de Cannes était imminent.
