Unlike Alfonso Cuarón's critically-lauded "Roma," which somehow managed to reduce its indigenous protagonist to a passive observer in her own life, Song Without a Name never loses sight of Georgina's pain or her agency - or its limits.

What are critics saying?
Song Without A Name is a true original, at once rooted in a raw emotional reality but told with the striking beauty of a dream. Writer-director Melina León is definitely one to watch.
The film is strikingly fixated on exploring loss and pain on an intimate and personal scale.
The narrative drifts, but the alienation communicated by the movie’s images feels purposeful and striking.
