The Red Carpet behind the wall - Photo: Cat Bauer (Venice, Italy) How does it feel to attend the Venice Film Festival during a global pandemic? Mostly serene. Less frenetic. More European. There is a new system in place where every person with accreditation must make a reservation for every screening and every press conference, which is a good thing. In past years, it had become more like a competition to get in the door to the buzzy films, and attendees were sometimes forced to queue l...

What I Saw Today on my Walk

  A moisten path leaves glistening with raindrops, nature breathing after a long spell without rain. Snails.          This cabanon (cabin) that really wants me to come inside. I know it does.
