Una Noche

Friday, August 23 - Thursday, October 17, 2013

Brimming with the pent-up energy of Havana’s restless youth, UNA NOCHE follows one sweltering day, full of hope and fraught with tension, that burns to a shocking climax. Trapped in Cuba’s crumbling, sun-bleached capital, Raul dreams of escaping to Miami. When he’s accused of assault, he resolves to flee. Raul begs his best friend, Elio, to abandon everything to make the dangerous crossing, but Elio is torn between helping Raul and protecting his own family. Winner, Best Actor, Best Cinematography and Best New Narrative Director, Tribeca Film Festival
