Wes Anderson has unveiled another brightly colored ad/short film for Prada, titled "Castello Cavalcanti." It stars Anderson regular Jason Schwartzman as a Formula race driver during the Molte Miglia rally in 1955.

Ace cinematographer Darius Khondji (who also shot Anderson's Prada Candy short starring Lea Seydoux, which landed earlier this year) has done the lensing. "Castello Cavalcanti" has a big-screen premiere at the Rome Film Festival this weekend.

This can keep Anderson fanatics sated until "The Grand Budapest Hotel" arrives in February, following its premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival (trailer here).
