Q&A with director Rebeca Huntt following the 8pm show on Friday June 24!

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.

“BEBA is an intimate film with a grand scope; Huntt recognizes herself and her family as characters in a mighty drama.” – Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“BEBA is a fascinating self-journal, a work about family, isolation, existing within America, and existing as who you are.” – Robert Daniels, Indiewire
