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.

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

— Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com

"[An] absorbing experimental documentary about a young woman's journey to find herself."

— Lovia Gyarkye, Hollywood Reporter

"'Beba' is a fascinating self-journal, a work about family, isolation, existing within America, and existing as who you are, that takes no prisoners and leaves plenty of casualties."

— Robert Daniels, indieWire

"The free-flowing style, aided by dreamlike editing from Isabel Freeman, is both playful and sombre, offering a captivating snapshot of a young artist trying to make sense of her complicated self."

— Tim Grierson, Screen Daily

"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"

— Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, AWFJ Women on Film
