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.
