A Festival Wife - Chapter 5:
The Dirty Deal Goes Wrong


A Festival thriller by Rex Weiner,
Illustration by Nesta Morgan

Henry
Dean, veteran publicist, resists retirement by holding onto his PR job
for the San Lorenzo Film Festival, where for twenty-eight years he has
stayed at the Hotel Medici, maintaining a long-running affair with his
beloved Leticia, one of the hotel's chamber maids. But Henry's job (and
love affair) depends upon looking after the Festival's guest of honor -
a cantankerous older film director who only needs a little press - and
the task is proving more trouble than anticipated. Equally troubling is
Henry's ex-wife Angie, a documentary filmmaker, who has arrived in San
Lorenzo with the intention of digging into ugly rumors concerning the
alleged Nazi past of San Lorenzo's leading citizen, Count Pietro Rassi,
who grandfather founded the Festival...

..."Who do I have to fuck to not go to this party?"
Loomis from the Village Voice announced aloud, trying to provoke
Charles, or some of the others on the shuttle van, into conversation.
No one even pretended to laugh. Even Bruno Chatelin and Malo
Girod de l'Ain - the guys from Filmfestivals.com who were pioneering
this new thing called the Internet - were rolling their eyes and
chuckling.
The shuttle van full of journos was on the way to
free drink and a bountiful repast and it was churlish to complain, but
they could hardly go without someone enacting a ritual display of
cynicism regarding promotional events. Bought off with liquor and
victuals? Surely not they!

Charles was busy reading the Variety story as I sat down next to him, the one that Jeffries had written.
