SONG WITHOUT A NAME by Melina León | Trailer | GeoMovies

Based on harrowing true events, Song tells the story of Georgina, an indigenous Andean woman whose newborn baby is whisked away moments after its birth in a downtown Lima clinic--and never returned. Stonewalled by a byzantine and indifferent legal system, Georgina approaches journalist Pedro Campas, who uncovers a web of fake clinics and abductions--suggesting a rotting corruption deep within Peruvian society. Set in 1988, in a Peru wracked by political violence and turmoil, Melina León's heart-wrenching first feature renders Georgina's story in gorgeous, shadowy black-and-white cinematography, "styled like the most beautiful of bad dreams" (Variety). This "Kafkaesque thriller" (The Hollywood Reporter) unflinchingly depicts real-life, stranger-than-fiction tragedies with poetic beauty. D: Melina León, Peru, subtitled, 2019, 1h37m.

"shot, scored and styled like the most beautiful of bad dreams."

"an intimately painful and quite terrifying drama"
