Family, friends and supporters of the San Antonio Four gathered last night at the Esperanza Peace and Justice Center in San Antonio to view a special screening of Southwest of Salem (SoS), the riveting documentary about their wrongful conviction for aggravated sexual abuse.

The film was shown at the exact same time as it was also being screened at Hot Docs, North America’s largest documentary festival, which offers a selection of over 200 films from Canada and around the world to Toronto audiences of more than 200,000.

Following the San Antonio screening, the San Antonio Four (Elizabeth Ramirez Cassandra Rivera Kristie Mayhugh Anna Vasquez) were linked via Skype to the Toronto audience of over 1,000 for a Q&A. SoS director Deborah S. Esquenazi and IPTX attorney Mike Ware were present in Toronto.
