A landmark documentary on gay people that will become a classic like "Before Stonewall" or "The Celluloid Closet". At once a great family drama and detective story.

This glowingly effective and intelligently low-key documentary manages to be both a stirring family drama and a valuable depiction of gay life and history in Paraguay.

Patiently photographed by Carlos Vásquez, who bestows the same gentle attention on grainy snapshots and the beautifully ruined face of an aging drag queen, "108" peels back layers of delusion and dishonesty.

Renate Costa's doc gradually simplifies into an elaborate seesaw between general, journalistic scoopery and unabashedly personal confrontation.

Costa's grainy footage looks amateurish at times-at one point, she runs out of battery and the screen goes dark-but her rule-breaking is bold.
