Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four: Lesbian
Latinas Fight for Justice
In association with Communities of Color United, with Special Guest Director Deborah S. Esquenazi
Southwest of Salem excavates the nightmarish persecution of four Latina lesbians wrongfully convicted of gang-raping two little girls in San Antonio, Texas. Using the women’s home video footage from 21 years ago combined with recent verité footage and interviews, the film explores their personal narratives and their search for exculpatory evidence.
