“Costa Rica, this is yours,” Felipe de Andrade wrote on his Instagram account.
Director Felipe de Andrade, who was born in Brazil and raised in Cleveland, US, won an Emmy for his Netflix production Wild Babies.
“Wild Babies” won in the “Outstanding Travel, Adventure and Nature Program” category. This print shows some of the wildlife of Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
The series tells the beginnings of the life of several types of wild animals, their development, and how their habits are born in their environment.
Chapter Four presents the life of Chico, a Capuchin monkey who lives in Guanacaste and is followed throughout his development.
De Andrade chose Costa Rica for this project not only because of the beauty and biodiversity the country offers, but – above all – because of the pride Ticos feels in showcasing world-class wildlife stories, in one of the country's wildest areas. Nature, surrounded by people who “love the wild.”
The director also chose Costa Rica for his documentary “The Hummingbird Effect,” which showcases the life and development of hummingbirds in our country.
