Tribeca 2012 Diary: Una Noche Director Lucy Mulloy

Posted: 04/25/2012 9:51 am

The drama of three young Cubans taking the not-inconsequential step of escaping their country to the (possibly) welcoming arms of the United States is traced in startling detail in Una Noche. Filming on-location, director Lucy Mulloy makes her feature film debut by capturing a compellingly credible portrayal of life in modern-day Havana -- the struggle for a decent job, the quest for the simple essentials of life, and the difficulty of implementing the 90 mile voyage that would take one away from the oppressive poverty.

Lucy and I met up outside Tribeca's press lounge to discuss the film. Our interview is below.
