FILM FAN: Prada has teamed up with film director Wes Anderson to unveil the third chapter of its “Prada Classics,” which explores different cultural fields such as art, architecture and cinema. Anderson directed an eight-minute short movie, called “Castello Cavalcanti,” which will be shown for the first time on Wednesday at the Rome Film Festival.

Filmed in Rome’s Cinecittà, the movie, which is set in 1955, starts with the main character, played by Jason Schwartzman, arriving in a tiny Italian village where he crushed his car against a statue of Jesus. He finds himself immersed in a completely new reality. Actress Giada Colagrande also appears in the short movie, which will be available at prada.com starting from Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.

Anderson will give a lecture before the screening, while the same night Miuccia Prada will host a private dinner in honor of the director and the movie’s cast at the Nino restaurant in Rome.
