Prada has teamed up once again with Wonderland favorite, Wes Anderson, to present their latest film collaboration, Castello Cavalcanti.
The eight-minute cinematic experience is another peak into Anderson’s ongoing auteur universe, which includes contemporary classics such as Moonrise Kingdom and The Royal Tenenbaums. The short film is set in September of 1955 in Rome where Anderson film frequent, Jason Schwartzman, has just crashed his racing car into a statue of Jesus Christ. Shortly after, Schwartzman finds himself engaged in a completely new universe. The short explores ranging cultural fields such as art, cinema, and architecture, as Prada often does in other ventures.
Castello Cavalcanti follows on from Prada’s 2012 collaboration with Roman Polanski, A Therapy, which featured Helena Bonham-Carter and Ben Kingsley. This is also Prada’s second short film with Anderson, following the 2013 short for Prada “Candy.” The film will debut, with a world première at the Rome Film Festival on November 13th 2013 as part of the “Special Events Out of Competition” section.
The film is available on www.prada.com from 6:30 pm CET.
