Italian luxury fashion house Prada, recently tapped famed director David O. Russell to produce a short film dubbed Past Forward. The film lasts just about fifteen minutes and stars Allison Williams, Freida Pinto and Kuoth Wiel in a “complex collage” that finds the stars reenacting the same situation.

“Here was the opportunity to make a journey guided by layers of movie memories, life images and emotions, with no aim except to create art — as if it were a painting or a sculpture — free from normal narrative or audience expectations,” explains Russell. “The cast and I worked simply for the joy of making art.”

The film also features a number of cameos from John Krasinski, Paula Patton, Connie Britton and Sacha Baron Cohen. View Past Forward on Prada’s website.
