Southwest of Salem
The Story of the San Antnio Four
First screened in September 2016
Director: Deborah S. Esquenazi. Documentary about four Latina lesbians living in Texas who are sentenced to many years in prison based on more-than-dubious allegations of sexual abuse and Satanic worship.

Twitter Capsule: A bit discombobulated as a film but an important showcase of sexist, racist, homophobic judicial railroading.

VOR:   The movie is a potent rejoinder to those who think we're already over this stuff. Still, structure of story and level of detail are erratic.
