Las poquianchis 1976
Delfina and Maria de Jesus Gonzalez (known as "Las Poquianchis") were two sisters from the Mexican state of Guanajuato, located 200 miles north of Mexico City. From the 1950s until the mid-1960s the sisters ran Rancho El Angel, called the "bordello from hell" in San Francisco del Rincon. When the police searched the sisters’ property, they found 11 men, 80 women, and several fetuses.

"Las Poquianchis" tells the story of the girls who were taken from their families under false promises and sent to the Poquianchis brothel. On arriving there, the girls were virtually kept as prisoners and forced to work as prostitutes - they were mistreated and sometimes even killed. The film keeps almost always a closed, dark atmosphere, which can be suffocating, but reflecting accurately the kind of life the girls in this ring were living.
