So proud!

I was in bed late last night when I got the wonderful news that the film that my sister edited, "Una Noche," swept the awards at the Tribeca Film Festival! This is the film for which we traveled to Berlin to witness the world premiere, and also the film that has been in the headlines for the week because two of its stars defected from Cuba during their layover in Miami on the way to NYC for the festival (ironically, the story is about young Cubans trying to escape to Miami). The actor who made it here, and one who did not, both received best actor awards--and they had never acted prior to this film. I am so out of my mind proud of li'l sis and only sorry the festival does not hand out editing awards.
