La Pageant Diva
by Franco Parente, Giovanni Profera and Tony Laurencio
After scrapping his initial Borscht Porject, Franco Parente penned this script in three hours late one night. What came out was a dark, sartiric gem of beauty queen abuse and bondage. While this was technically a work print, the feel was the most flamboyantly Miami of all the festival. Just wait, it’s probably going to wind up as a series on cable.
