Sundance Selects Picks Up Mulloy's Cuban-Set Tribeca Winner 'Una Noche'

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.”
