Vero Majano is a queer Latina artist born and raised in San Francisco's Mission District. Her works are steeped in film, performance, visual culture, and storytelling.

Her live cinema projects include archival footage, photographs, interviews, storytelling and film through a personal lens.
She has performed and her work has screened at the San Francisco International Film Festival, the Guggenheim Museum in New York and Pop-Up Magazine. She has received grants from the Rockefeller Foundation Media Fellowship, the Puffin Foundation, the San Francisco Arts Commission, the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures, and the Free History Project.
