Lucy Mulloy's "Una Noche"
has gone to Sundance Selects for North American distribution. The film debuted at Berlin, then Tribeca where it won Best New Narrative Director, Best Cinematography in a Narrative Feature and Best Actor in a Narrative Feature for stars Dariel Arrechada and Javier Nuñez Florian. The film follows three Cuban teens (Anailin de la Rua de la Torre also stars) over the course of a day, highlighting the contrast between their poverty-stricken lives and tourists who visit.
Synopsis: "They dream of Miami, just 90 miles across the ocean. When Raul is accused of assaulting a foreigner, he has no choice but to flee, but Elio must decide whether his desire for a better life and helping Raul are worth leaving Lila, his beloved twin sister."
Sundance's Jonathan Sehring calls the film "a remarkable first film..Lucy Mulloy is a major director to watch and has created a film that is both vibrant and sexy but also powerful."
