SOUTHWEST OF SALEM:
THE STORY OF THE SAN ANTONIO FOUR
3117 16th Street, San Francisco, CA 94103
Free to the Public. No tickets are required.
This extraordinary documentary highlights the ongoing injustice that “The San Antonio Four,” Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez, are still enduring. They are four Latina lesbians wrongfully convicted of gang-raping two little girls in San Antonio, Texas. However, the evidence was never there.
The San Antonio Four continues to fight against mythology, faux-science, homophobia, and the prosecutorial fervor in their continuous struggle for exoneration in this riveting ‘True Crime’ tale. The suffering, outlandish, and baseless accusations caught one man’s attention who helped to garner the support of the Innocent Project.
Co-presented by Cine + Mas/SF Latino Film Festival & National Center for Lesbian Rights. Click here for more information: http://www.southwestofsalem.com
I have watched this documentary; as such, it is extraordinary in both: its facts and its storytelling capacity. Most of all, I wish these four brave women get to see the light at the end of the tunnel, finally set forever free. (LP)
