The Host and the Cloud was filmed in a building that once housed the Musée national des Arts et Traditions Populaires in Paris, which had been closed five years earlier. The staged experiment, also called The Host and the Cloud, lasted three days. It was filmed on Halloween 2009, Valentine’s Day and May Day of 2010. A live audience witnessed the event. From the footage shot during these three days and nights, Pierre Huyghe created this film.
