Prada Presents “Castello Cavalcanti” by Wes Anderson
Last year, Prada teamed up with Roman Polanski to debut “A Therapy” at Cannes Film Festival. This year, the Italian fashion house returns with an equally compelling short, this time enlisting illustrious filmmaker Wes Anderson to direct “Castello Cavalcanti.” The eight-minute film stars Jason Schwartzman and Giada Colagrande, and is set in 1950s Italy. Shot in Rome, Schwartzman plays a race car driver who crashes his roadster into a Jesus sculpture in Castella Cavalcanti — a small town which he soon finds out belongs to his ancestors. In between mingling with the locals and sampling the local delights, Schwartzman decides to catch the next bus back to the city, making the most out of the serendipitous event. Check out the full short above.
