Song Without a Name Trailer

"My baby girl was stolen. I need to file a report." Film Movement has released an official US trailer for the Peruvian film Song Without a Name, originally titled Canción Sin Nombre, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year (we featured a trailer then, too). The vintage B&W investigative drama is the feature directorial debut of a Peruvian filmmaker named Melina Leon. It's based on a true account of child trafficking uncovered by journalist Ismael Leon, father of the film's director. Georgina is a young woman from the Andes whose newborn daughter is stolen at a fake health clinic. Her desperate search for the baby leads her to the headquarters of a major newspaper, where she meets Pedro Campos, a lonely journalist who takes on the investigation with her. Starring Pamela Mendoza, Tommy Párraga, Lucio Rojas, Maykol Hernández, and Lidia Quipse. I really dig the look and feel of this, despite the very sad story it's telling.

Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Melina León's Song Without a Name, direct from YouTube:
