Summary:
This silkscreen shows the dejected title character of the film, Belen, who wants to become a nurse, but must deal with her father's objections. The storyline is suggested by the girl's pensive gaze, the books and the picture on her lap. The poster provides social commentary about the educational possibilities of women and girls in Puerto Rican society. (From exhibition text by Marvette Perez.)
