Peruvian brothers Daniel and Diego Vega who blasted on the international scene with Octubre (they’ll be at New Directors/New Films next) will be returning to Cannes for their second trip in a row as part of the 2011’s L’Atelier — the Cannes initiative where the participants complete financing packages for their films. Previous projects (I’ll take 2008 as an example) include Oleg Novkovic’s White, White World, Benedek Fliegauf’s Womb, Braden King’s HERE which just preemie at Sundance and Berlin and you have Lou Ye’s “Bitch” which is now called Love & Bruises (look for a Main Comp entry at Cannes this year).
