When a woman moves into a new house she is visited by a mysterious entity, a Black Box, which upon peering through its peephole unlocks multiple universes, each viewed from a different woman’s perspective.
From acclaimed director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, The Neon Demon, Too Old to Die Young, Copenhagen Cowboy), Touch of Crude is a short movie created for the Prada Spring Summer 2023 women’s runway show. Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons invited Refn to envision an experience around Prada’s SS23 women’s collection, including an immersive installation, the runway show’s physical environs in collaboration with AMO, and a short movie, as an opportunity for observation and intersection between two creative spheres. At the center of this creative intersection is Touch of Crude, which debuted earlier this month at the Fondazione Prada’s Cinema in Milan following its premiere at the Lyon Lumière Film Festival in October 2022 as well as the Geneva International Film Festival and the Stockholm Film Festival in November 2022. Available everywhere now, Touch of Crude (Soundtrack from the PRADA Short Film) features a hypnotic, synth-driven soundscape conceived by composer and frequent Nicolas Winding Refn collaborator Cliff Martinez.
Of the film’s soundtrack, directorNicolas Winding Refn says, “Partnering up with Prada, Cliff Martinez’s music was a taste of fashion with my Touch of Crude.”
