    From a very early age I fell in love with all kinds of artistic manifestations. Later on, I realized that film encompasses all of them. I think film expands our minds and emotions and our sense of beauty.

    Melina León is a Peruvian director based in Lima and New York. An MFA film graduate of Columbia University, her short film LILI'S PARADISE (2009) made its international debut at the New York Film Festival winning eleven awards at over twenty international festivals, including Best Latin American Film at the Sao Paulo ISFF.
    Her opera prima SONG WITHOUT A NAME (2019) premiered at Quinzaine des Réalisateurs and most recently won the CineVision Award at FF Filmfest München. The film was inspired by a true account of child trafficking originally reported by Ismael Leon, her father.
