All About the Feathers
Por las plumas | Neto Villalobos, 2013
Costa Rica | Spanish with English subtitles | Format: DCP | 85 minutes

Q&A with director Neto Villalobos.

Chalo is inseparable from his friend Rocky, a fighting cock he acquires to bring some excitement into his boring life as a security guard. But what Rocky brings is in fact an unexpected set of screwball adventures. Cockfighting is illegal but has a passionate following in the small Costa Rican town where Chalo lives (the film tastefully keeps the action offscreen). Neto Villalobos’s winning, dryly funny debut feature renders that world with genuine flavor and charm by a cast made up of mostly nonprofessional actors.
