“Costa Rica Culture” by 7 “Kids”

Back in May 2018 I reviewed here and told about the Costa Rica made movie “Güilas” the title of which is the Costa Rican slang word for children like American English “Kids.” The movie is actually seven short stories about seven different kids, each in a different one of the seven provinces of Costa Rica thus visually showing many parts of this beautiful country and its varied cultures by my favorite Costa Rica Photographer, Sergio Pucci (I use one of his CR Calendars every year for his beautiful photography!). This is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen anywhere and is definitely the best one on the culture of Costa Rica! Well worth $10 USD from Vimeo!

One of the 7 Stories:

One of the seven short stories – this in the Caribe, Limon Province.

See Movie Online at a Typical Theater Cost:

It was in theaters here back in 2018 and the only place I’ve found that offers the full movie online is Vimeo, which rents it for $10 for 24 hours or you can buy it for your library for $15, both prices well worth their charge! It is not on Netflix or any other streaming service yet that I can find online nor for sale in stores that I’ve seen.
