About Beba

New York filmmaker Rebeca "Beba" Huntt explores her cultural background as an Afro-Latinx woman. In this tough, raw, stubborn, and powerful self-portrait, Beba stares down the curses of her ancestry, probing the psychic wounds she has inherited while simultaneously embracing the vastness of her multitudes. In the course of four revealing "chapters," Huntt sheds light on a complicated family history, her upbringing, the influence of the Black Lives Matter movement, and her dreams of the future. [89 min; documentary; English and Spanish with English subtitles]

A Q&A with Solimar Otero (Folklore and Ethnomusicology, director of Latino Studies) and Olga Rodriguez-Ulloa (American Studies, Latino Studies) will follow the screening.

"Turning the lens on herself in ways in which we rarely see women of color do, first-time feature filmmaker Rebeca 'Beba' Huntt exhibits a vulnerability that is incredibly brave." β€” Ronda Racha Penrice, TheWrap

"A virtuoso bomb-drop of a documentary." β€” Mark Keizer, AV Club

"While this is a work to reveal the illusion of meta narratives, it’s also an outpouring of love and truth, one that documents a movement with a keen eye." β€” Niani Scott, RogerEbert.com
