Latin Wave 9 film screening: All about the Feathers

Outsider Pictures

Challo, bored by his day-to-day routine, buys a rooster, which he names Rocky, to get into cockfighting. The two become inseparable, with Challo taking Rocky along with him everywhere, singing to him — even letting him sleep in his bed. Unfortunately, Challo's landlord, tired of the rooster waking up the neighbors at the break of dawn, is adamant that Rocky must go.

Luckily Challo has friends who stick by him, including a loquacious workmate and Candy, the Avon saleswoman, who becomes their greatest ally.

Neto Villalobos' comedic feature debut paints a hilarious, yet moving, portrait of friendship in a sleepy Costa Rican town. The screening will be introduced by the filmmaker.
