The Provocative Charm of the Female Gaze - 4

THE PROVOCATIVE CHARM OF WOMEN’S GAZE series of screenings organized by WIFT GR continues for a second consecutive year. On Sunday January 19, 2020, at 5 pm, we will screen the Peruvian movie SONG WITHOUT A NAME by Melina Leon, which has screened at Cannes Film Festival and won several awards. First screening in Athens. Free admission.

The story:

After her newborn daughter is taken away from her in a fake health clinic, Georgina –a young indigenous woman from the Andes– is driven to the desperate search of her offspring. Her only ally, a reserved reporter, who takes on a painstaking fight for justice, attempting to shed light upon this obscure case.

A striking true story of baby trafficking on the 1980s in Peru. The haunting struggle of two kindred spirits in a country politically hostile to minorities, depicted in an atmospheric black-and-white cinematography.

It’s worth mentioning that, in reality, the reporter who exposed the trafficking network is none other than the director’s father.
