The center axis of the space contains a 12-screen film installation by the director David O. Russell and the New York design studio 2x4. Russell imagined the installation as a surreal dreamscape with an eclectic cast replaying scenes in shifting combinations. The content is derived from the soon-to-be released short film Past Forward, a collaboration between Russell and Miuccia Prada. Critically acclaimed for his award winning cinema working with ensembles of actors in films such as The Fighter, American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook, Russell conceived of Past Forward as a complex experiment in cinematic form intended for display in multiple environments: gallery installation, cinema, social media, and online.
