Likeable main character gets into funny/dangerous situations. Things happen to him. He does not make things happen.
Probably an "in" joke for festival directors, it's about a "well-known" director who seems to be rather a bystander in his own life -- in two chapters a few weeks apart. People ask him deep questions but he keeps changing the answers. He meets people from his past but he has trouble re-connecting. Fanciful and slightly funny.
