Cuban ‘defector film’ takes Tribeca prizes

A movie about Cuban boat people, whose stars have gone missing, has won three prizes at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The best actor award went to Javier Nunez Florian, who disappeared with his co-star Analin de la Rua de la Torre, en route to the festival.

Their movie, Una Noche, is about three Cuban teenagers who defect to the US.

London-born Lucy Molloy won best new director for the film, while African drama War Witch was named best narrative feature.

Its star, Rachel Mwanza, won the best actress prize, for her role as a girl who is abducted and forced to become a child soldier.

The best documentary award was given to The World Before Her, which contrasts the participants in a Miss India beauty pageant and a fundamentalist Hindu girls camp.
