Wrongful Convictions Film Screening

Film Screening - "Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four"

After being wrongfully convicted of gang-raping two little girls during the Satanic Panic witchhunt of the 80s and 90s, four Latina lesbians fight against mythology, homophobia, and prosecutorial fervor in this now-classic gay rights  ‘True Crime’ tale that helped exonerate the ‘San Antonio Four’. The film received a Peabody Award, a GLAAD award for ‘Outstanding Documentary’, and a Critic’s Choice Award for ‘Best First Feature’.

Exonerees Anna Vazquez and Elizabeth Ramirez, two of the “San Antonio Four,” will answer questions about Southwest of Salem.
