Our first film is Fly So Far (El Salvador, 2021), in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.

After serving ten years behind bars for her miscarriage, considered by her government to be an act of aggravated murder, Teodora Vásquez becomes a spokesperson for the other 16 Salvadoran women behind bars for the same "crime" in this story of sorority, resilience, and solidarity.
