First-time feature filmmaker Rebeca “Beba” Huntt undertakes an unflinching exploration of her own identity in the remarkable coming-of-age documentary/cinematic memoir BEBA. Reflecting on her childhood and adolescence in New York City as the daughter of a Dominican father and Venezuelan mother, Huntt investigates the historical, societal, and generational trauma she’s inherited and ponders how those ancient wounds have shaped her, while simultaneously considering the universal truths that connect us all as humans. Throughout BEBA, Huntt searches for a way to forge her own creative path amid a landscape of intense racial and political unrest.

Poetic, powerful and profound, BEBA is a courageous, deeply human self-portrait of an Afro-Latina artist hungry for knowledge and yearning for connection.

R, 79 min.

"The filmmaker delves into all of who she is, including darker or more destructive aspects of her identity, pushing viewers to see Huntt’s complexity — and perhaps their own." – New York Times

"A virtuoso bomb-drop of a documentary." – AV Club

"In the telling of her own story, Huntt in BEBA is necessarily telling the stories of others, too, and ultimately it is that focus on how things interconnect - not just individuals, but histories themselves - that render BEBA such a fascinating experience." – AWFJ Women on Film

"A gorgeous visual memoir laced with poetry, memory, and truth." – RogerEbert.com
