Cuban actors in a Cuban film about people escaping Cuba for the US, on tour for the US opening defect to the US.

From The Daily Mail:

Two actors that star in a film about escaping from the streets of Havana to America have vanished in Miami in a shining example of life imitating art.

Anailin de la Rua de la Torre and Javier Nunez Florian, both 20 years old, were flown from Cuba to the United States on Friday, scheduled to appear at their film’s premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.

But neither showed up in New York for the ‘Una Noche’ red carpet, leaving their co-star, Dariel Arrechada, 20, to explain what happened.

‘I’m here alone in New York,’ Mr Arrechada said to the Huffington Post in Spanish.

He said that no one from the film’s crew was able to contact the two actors and they say they have no idea where they’ve gone.

Friday was the first time any of the actors had ever been to the states, the film’s director, Lucy Mulloy, tweeted last month.

‘Actors are so excited to come to Tribeca FF!! First time out of Cuba to the US!’ she wrote.

Each of them were granted short-term visas that lasted only ‘a few days,’ but it looks like Mr Arrechada will be the only one returning to Cuba.

‘At the very least, I will go back to Cuba,’ Mr Arrechada told the website. ‘I have my family there, my friends, my girlfriend.’
