Hello Flight 4516 to Park City. See you in 24 hours!
For one full week director Deborah S. Esquenazi will be hitting the pavement at Sundance as one of the 2014 Sundance Documentary Film Fellow. The purpose will be to spread the word about four incredible ladies and one of the most important LGBTQ cases in American criminal history.
To read Esquenazi’s blog about Sundance (and other film-related things) go to http://voxpopuland.tumblr.com

In light of Slate’s compelling article about the Fran & Keller we’d release some footage of Fran Keller addressing the media at Dan’s release.
Fran and Dan served 22 years of a 48-year sentence. They are fighting for exoneration, like the San Antonio Four.
Slate has been doing a series of articles of Satanic panic; Fran and Dan are featured in this one. Fran and Dan Keller also sat down with our crew.
Read about their horrific trials here.
I’m one of the 2014 Sundance Documentary Film Fellows representing SOUTHWEST OF SALEM: THE STORY OF THE SAN ANTONIO FOUR.
I will be sending photos, reports, musings, asides and after-thoughts from Park City this year, beginning on January 16th.
