“Has your blood pressure been sufficiently raised by shows like MAKING A MURDERER and movies like the PARADISE LOST trilogy? Buckle up, because we’ve got another unbelievable true crime story story that will leave you equal parts fascinated and furious.” –Kate Erbland, INDIEWIRE

SOUTHWEST OF SALEM: THE STORY OF THE SAN ANTONIO FOUR excavates the nightmarish persecution of Elizabeth Ramirez, Cassandra Rivera, Kristie Mayhugh, and Anna Vasquez — four Latina lesbians wrongfully convicted of allegedly gang raping two little girls. This bizarre case is the first to be adjudicated under momentous new legislation: for the first time in U.S. history, innocents can challenge convictions based on debunked scientific evidence. The film also unravels the sinister interplay of mythology, homophobia, and prosecutorial fervor which led to this modern day witch hunt.
