Two standout films at this year’s edition of the Tribeca Film Festival will channel the inner Hispanic teen in any viewer. Puerto Rican Lena in the Bronx in “Babygirl” and Lila in Cuba in “Una Noche” face disparate, heart-wrenching challenges that will impact and inform their lives forever. In “Una Noche,” Lila, her twin brother Elio and his friend, Raul hatch a plan to escape to Miami from a broken Cuba, while innocent Lena in “Babygirl” has her plan to escape from the advances of her mother’s boyfriend. “Una Noche” written and directed by Lucy Mulloy and shot in Cuba and “Babygirl” written and directed by Macdara Vallely will be presented at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival in New York, NY as follows: “Una Noche” Thursday, April 19th – 9:00PM; Friday, April 20th – 7:00PM; Tuesday, April 24th – 3:45PM and Friday, April 27th – 5:30PM. “Babygirl” Thursday, April 19th – 9:00PM; Saturday, April 21st – 12:00PM and Friday, April 27th – 9:00PM. Lucy Mulloy, a student academy award-nominated writer/director and Oxford alumna in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics, is a recent graduate of NYU’s Graduate Film Division based between NYC, London and Havana, Cuba. Macdara Vallely was born in Ireland. His first feature film, “Peacefire,” was adapted from his Edinburgh Fringe First award-winning play and won several international awards, including Galway Film Fleadh, the European First Feature Festival at Angers, and the Annonay Film Festival. Powerful in their own way these are two films not to be missed. For more information, visit http://www.unanochefilm.com.
