Life Imitates Art: Cuban Actors to Seek Asylum in U.S.


Two Cuban actors who disappeared in the United States, where they had traveled to present at New York's Tribeca Film Festival for their film "Una Noche" (One Night), will request asylum.  Anailin de la Rua and Javier Nuñez Florian, both 20, confirmed their intentions in an interview granted exclusively to the America Teve television network, where they said that they had spent a week "frightened" in Miami and "without wanting to leave the house" of her uncle, who lives there. ... "We've already prepared a large part of the (papers to request) asylum, and I think that next week we'll present them and we'll be able to have a response relatively quickly," said their lawyer, Willy Allen." -
