Films funded by online campaigns tend to yield inconsistent results; they frequently run out of money or shoot under poor conditions without the resources needed to realize their vision. But every now and then a project finds its legs through this funding model.

Neto Villalobos’ low key dramedy All About the Feathers is a perfect example of a film that’s off to a running start. Made with a small, committed crew and a remarkable, mostly nonprofessional cast, Villalobos culls winning results.

In a weary Costa Rican town where cockfighting is the main event, the likable Chalo is bored with his day-to-day, and now he wants in on the game. However, he ends up with more than he expected… and a little of the unexpected.

Rest assured, Villalobos keeps the cockfighting off-screen and focuses his attention squarely on the deadpan comedy that arises from a relationship that’s neither fish nor fowl. It’s a quirky story about a man and his rooster, who he names Rocky. Not having a proper place to raise and train Rocky triggers a series of comical events that put Chalo’s passion and love for his new and only “friend” to the test. You won’t find another film quite like this.
