Disclaimer; I received this DVD for free, in exchange for my review, I have not been compensated in any way.

Based on harrowing true events, SONG WITHOUT A NAME, just named Peru’s Official Oscar® Submission for Best International Film at the 93rd Academy Awards®, 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 Compos, 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).  Check the Trailer on A Song Without A Name-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rrw0YmZDhic&feature=youtu.be

A 2019 Cannes Camera d’Or nominee, SONG WITHOUT A NAME, and winner of more than 30 international awards including “Best Film” at the Lima Latin American Film Festival and “Best Film by an Emerging Director” at the Munich Film Festival, the festival favorite period piece has garnered raves around the world. Guy Lodge of Variety wrote that the film “prompted surface-level comparisons to Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma…but León’s far more modestly scaled Latin American period piece is entirely its own film, meshing vérité-style technique with passages of dark, folkloric reverie… León’s world-building remains mesmerizing, steeped as it is in local lore, rituals and haunting traditional music.”
