BEBA - Official Trailer


This hypnotic directorial debut takes no prisoners and leaves plenty of casualties. 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 the film, 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. D: Rebeca Huntt, 2022, US

"Gorgeous. Laced with poetry, memory and truth."  RogerEbert.com
