In a magical, Edwardian style ballroom last week, at Sydney’s usually private Government House, the chandelier’s were dimmed to launch Prada’s latest artistic offering, a beautiful film titled ‘Past Forward’.
If you’re searching for inspiration I strongly suggest that you get your popcorn at the ready and find your comfiest spot on the couch to watch this mesmerising short film.
Miuccia Prada, well known for her creative passion on and off the runway, has collaborated with Film Maker David.O.Russell – known for films such as Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle – to produce what Mr Russell describes best as a ‘Cinematic Poem’.
We sat side by side amongst some of my favourite Australian Musicians, Artists and Fashion Journalists, as the nail biting musical score led us on a black and white parallel journey through time. Considered to be something of a visual and narrative experiment, there are moments when you’re watching the film that leave you wondering whether you’re experiencing a dream, reality or something in between.
‘Past Forward’ is an intriguing and thrilling expression of art, and a testament to the Prada creative spirit. Who’s meeting me at the couch?
In support of Yalari helping our indigenous students to further their educations for a brighter future.
