All About the Feathers
In a Costa Rican town where cockfighting is the main event, Chalo, a bored security guard, decides he wants in on the game. But once he gets his coveted rooster, Rocky, he finds that his feathered fighter might just be the best friend he's ever had. Rest assured, director Neto Villalobos keeps the cockfighting in the background and focuses his attention on the sweet and silly escapades of Chalo with deadpan aplomb. A crowdsourcing success story, All About the Feathers makes the most of its shoestring budget and non-professional cast.
