    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – “Por Las Plumas” ( All About the  Feathers) has won  International acclaim for the  (Work in Progress film) 31st Miami International Film Festival USA, during March this year.  It  also participated in the Cannes Film Festival, France during May 2013. This comedy is all about a security guard who wants to get into the cockfighting game buys, befriends, and becomes inseparable from his rooster protégé Rocky, in this winsome feature debut from Costa Rican director, Neto Villalobos.

    What are the things you picture when you think of Costa Rica? Ecotourism, zip-lining through cloud forests, howler monkey-watching, and maybe vast white sandy beaches? Filmmaker Neto Villalobos wants to show you a very different, more working-class, quirky-slice-of-life side of the country in his first feature, playing at the Vancouver International Film Festival this year.

    “I see the beauty in chaos,” Villalobos explains over the phone from San Jose, in the week before coming here to speak at some of his screenings. “I know there are a lot of magical places in Costa Rica, and beautiful beaches, but that’s not what I wanted to show. I love that, but I think there is a beauty in this other Costa Rica that people are not used to seeing.

    Watch the movie. You won’t want to miss it.
