Life Imitating Art? ‘Una Noche’ Actors Seemingly Fleeing Cuba After Arriving in U.S. for Film Festival

Thousands of Cubans have lost their lives fleeing the totalitarian state, where the average salary is around $20 a month. “That’s their choice, you know?” the actors’ co-star concluded. “To be sincere, I think they’re going to stay [in America].”

In “a shining example of life imitating art,” in the words of the Daily Mail, two young stars from a movie about escaping Cuba for America have vanished in Miami, after leaving Cuba for the Tribeca Film Festival.

Anailin de la Rua de la Torre and Javier Nunez Florian, both 20, flew from Cuba to the United States on Friday, but neither ended up in New York for their movie’s red carpet event– leaving their co-star to explain what transpired.

“I’m alone here in New York,” Dariel Arrechada remarked. Unable to reach his colleagues, he continued: “Well, at the very least, I will go back to Cuba…I have my family there, my friends, my girlfriend…”

“Here, I don’t know anyone. Here, I don’t know the way of life. I also don’t know English very well.”
