"I am a big lover of Mexican folk art and the reason I love it is because it’s very accessible art. I consider it art by the people for the people, but it’s also is a mirror of who we are. […] I eventually came up with the idea of having some of the characters made out of wood because growing up I loved wooden toys, with all their flaws and imperfections. The film takes place post Mexican revolution, it was a hard time. The bad guys in the movie are made out of metal. The idea is that when they went to the army they put metal on themselves but never took it off, and they don’t have any guns because they’re the weapons themselves. In this world, when you’re born, the wood you’re made out of is really smooth and as you grow older the wood starts aging. Wood is life, and there’s also a tree of life that symbolizes it. The movie is dripping with symbolism and magic realism.” - Jorge Gutierrez

"Johnnie Phelps, a woman sergeant in the army, thought, “There was a tolerance for lesbianism if they needed you. The battalion I was in was probably about ninety-seven percent lesbian.”
Sergeant Phelps worked for General Eisenhower. Four decades after Eisenhower had defeated the Axis powers, Phelps recalled an extraordinary event. One day, the general told her, “I’m giving you an order to ferret those lesbians out. We’re going to get rid of them.”
“I looked at him and then I looked at his secretary who was standing next to me, and I said, ‘Well, sir, if the general pleases, sir, I’ll be happy to do this investigation for you. But you have to know that the first name on the list will be mine.’ “
“And he was kind of taken aback a bit. And then this women standing next to me said, ‘Sir, if the General pleases, you must be aware that Sergeant Phelp’s name may be second, but mine will be first.”
“Then I looked at him, and said, ‘Sir, you’re right. They’re lesbians in the WAC battalion. And if the general is prepared to replace all the file clerks, all the section commanders, all the drivers-every woman in the WAC detachment-and there were about nine hundred and eighty something of us-then I’ll be happy to make that list. But I think the general should be aware that among those women are the most highly decorated women in the war. There have been no cases of illegal pregnancy. There have been no cases of AWOL. There have been no cases of misconduct. And as a matter of fact, every six months since we’ve been here, the general has awarded us a commendation for meritorious conduct.”
“And he said, ‘Forget the order.’”"

Phelps tells this story herself in the excellent 1984 documentary Before Stonewall, which you can watch in its entirety on YouTube (she’s at 19:30, but really, watch the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kX7AxQd82H8

(I wonder how many of those women were, ya know, Bisexual and Pansexual. We’re often erased. BUT, this is a fantastic story all the same.)
