Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Luis Manzo's The Archangel's Feather is based on a novel by Arturo Uslar Pietri. A small village notes the passing of the town telegraph operator. Gabriel Vilano (Ivan Tamayo) appears from nowhere and lets people know that he is the new operator. Gabriel is shown the ropes by Lazarillo (Roque Valero) who explains that two never-seen leaders ("The Governer" and "The Supreme Chief") control the town. Lazarillo is in love with Fina (Elaiza Gil), but her pregnancy is causing a scandal. Gabriel attempts to right some of the town's wrongs. The Archangel's Feather was screened at the Palm Springs Film Festival.
