The Amazing Truth About Queen Raquela

2008 R

Olaf de Fleur Johannesson's delightfully unique documentary chronicles the travels of a Filipina transsexual prostitute named Raquela Rios who embarks on a hunt for love that leads her on a journey from Iceland to Paris and everywhere in between. Part fairy tale, part quest for self-discovery, Johannesson's refreshing film paints a vivid portrait of transsexual life not commonly seen by mainstream audiences.
