Miuccia Prada David O. Russell


David O. Russell — the American filmmaker known for “Silver Linings Playbook,” “I Heart Huckabees,” “American Hustle” and “Joy” — is the latest director to collaborate with Miuccia Prada on a project. A portion of their short film “Past Forward” will debut on a multiscreen installation during the women’s spring 2017 collection Sept. 22 in Milan.

According to a release, the black-and-white film is “a surreal dreamscape with an eclectic cast replaying scenes in shifting combinations.” It has been shot to be displayed as a museum installation, on a traditional film screen, social media and online. The plot and cast were not disclosed, but the full film will premiere in Los Angeles in November and afterward at www.prada.com.
