The Perilous Journey of Maria Rosa Palacios

A short movie made by the film maker who attempts to document the journey traversed by her great grandmother Maria Rosa Palacios when she went from Chota to Guayaquil in 1906 to work as a domestic help when she was barely 14 years old. It is not a period film, in that sense, as the film attempts to recreate the route with a couple of interviews thrown in. It would have been great if the film maker had found out the exact house where Maria Rosa started working and interviews with their descendents. There is no narration either of the route taken by the great lady. Some few breathtaking scenery of Ecuador is shown.
