Queen of Belvedere

“Queen of Belvedere” is a portrait documentary about the life of Vilma Romero and her experience as an immigrant woman in the United States. She works 10 hours a day, 7 days a week even though she is 70 years old. Her commute starts at 5 am and she arrives home by 9:00 pm. Her hard work has come to define her – a habit that keeps her in constant motion and one step ahead of the memories of her past.

Directed by Jyll Johnstone / Canobie Films (Currently in post-production.)
