All About the Feathers
Pulsos Latinos

Apr 18 - Apr 22

(Neto Villalobos, Costa Rica, 2013, DCP, 85 min)

Por las plumas

Friday, Apr 18 at 09:00PM
Tuesday, Apr 22 at 07:00PM

Getting an independent production off the ground in Costa Rica (where the film industry pales in comparison with the sway of ecotourism) is about as likely as a lanky security guard raising a prize-fighting rooster. Director Neto Villalobos nimbly charts the trials of Chalo, who covets a local grocer's auspicious-seeming bird that, once possessed, is re-christened 'Rocky' and becomes something of a life partner to the loner who lives, naturally, above a fried chicken joint.

Increasingly banished on account of his feathered friend, whom bosses and landlords are less than hospitable to, a weary Chalo finds unexpected friends at the intersection where dreaming meets displacement. Count on the neighborly maid (an avid Avon saleswoman), and gun-toting workmate (teller of Bible stories) to fill out Chalo's adoptive family: birds of a feather flock together in this original and winsome comedy.
