108 – Cuchillo de Palo

2010 Documentary 01h31

Rodolfo was the only one among Renate’s uncles who didn’t want to be a blacksmith like her grandfather: He wanted to be a dancer. This is the search of the traces of his life and the discovery that in the Paraguay of the eighties, under Stroessner’s dictatorship, he was included in one of the “108 homosexual lists”, arrested and tortured.

Rodolfo’s story reveals a part of the hidden and silenced history of my country. In “108” two generations get confronted to understand the place each one of us occupies in the world.
