San Francisco Latino Film Festival shines a light on LGBT themes.

Extract: From El Salvador comes “El Cadaver Exquisito (The Exquisite Corpse),” written and directed by Victor Ruano, an Emmy-winning graphic designer. Ruano edited 400 hours of footage into 90 minutes to create this experimental film, a raw documentary influenced by distinctive Latin American surrealism. In a series of seemingly disjointed vignettes, including an extensive look into the lives of local transgender sex workers, “El Cadaver Exquisito” juxtaposes unscripted everyday rituals with staged dream sequences to provide social commentary on violence in El Salvador, especially against women.

Correction: the editor of the movie was Elric Kane.
