Q&A to follow the screening, with filmmaker Rebecca Hunt and moderated by Jesus Hernandez.

BEBA is a courageous, deeply human self-portrait of a restless artist hungry for knowledge and yearning for connection. A young NYC-born and bred Afro-Latina stares down historical, societal, and generational trauma with unflinching courage. “I carry an ancient pain that I struggle to understand.” So begins the confessional narration that opens Rebeca “Beba” Huntt’s remarkable cinematic memoir.

Raw and intimate, powerful and profound, Rebeca is seeking to gain a more concrete understanding of her identity as a young Afro-Latina woman and an up-and-coming filmmaker, Huntt reflects on her childhood and adolescence in New York City as the daughter of a Dominican father and a Venezuelan mother. BEBA is written and directed by Huntt, who also produces with Sofia Geld. Petra Costa, Alyse Ardell Spiegel, Alessandra Orofino, Joy Bryant and Inuka Bacote-Capiga serve as the film’s executive producers.
