Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four, documentary
Southwest of Salem: The Story of the San Antonio Four documents the persecution of Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez – 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 evidence to help their cases. In Nov. 23, 2016, the San Antonio Four were exonerated. Director Deborah Esquenazi will hold a Q&A after the screening at ETSU.
