HamptonsFilm presents NOW SHOWING Canción sin nombre (Song Without a Name)
Directed by Melina León
(Peru/Spain/US, 2019, 97 minutes)
Spanish & Quechua w. English subtitles
Based on harrowing true events, Song Without a Name 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. Song Without a Name is a “Kafkaesque thriller” (The Hollywood Reporter) that unflinchingly depicts real-life, stranger-than fiction tragedies with poetic beauty.
NOW SHOWING brings acclaimed first-run art house, independent, and world cinema films currently in theaters to the East End.
