SIMBIOSIS: JOURNEY TO THE HEART OF THE TROPICS (Costa Rica, 2011, 55 min.)

United States Premiere This sensory journey to the heart of the tropics lovingly captures such species as monkeys, deer, birds and spiders, depicting their symbiosis with the sea and the rain in this little-known landscape of the Guanacaste Dry Forest, which has been saved and protected. This multimedia film project combines the camera work of Luciano Capelli, a piano performance by Manuel Obregón (Costa Rica’s current Minister of Culture) and sounds captured by Nano Fernandez, to create a work where natural and artistic elements interact with each other. Obregón’s music about one of the most threatened ecosystems in the world transports us from the moon-lit dawn in Malpais, on the southernmost tip of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula, up to the high mountain forest covering the volcanoes of Guanacaste. No narration. Director and Executive Producer: Luciano Capelli.

Introduced by Her Excellency Muni Figueres, Ambassador of Costa Rica.
