A young NYC born and bred Afro-Latina stares down historical, societal, and generational trauma with unflinching courage.
(Beba / 2022 / 1hr&19mins / Rated 18)
As part of Women's History Month in March 2023, Fabrica’s 18-25 Film Programmers group Fresh Perspectives have chosen the documentary ‘Beba.’ An honest exploration into identity as a young black woman in contemporary America.
The director Rebecca ‘Beba’ Huntt, born to a Dominican father and Venezuelan mother, takes the viewer through a reflective journey of her childhood. Through her own identity Huntt explores societal, historical and generational trauma. Traversing a political mine-field of racial tension in America, Huntt navigates through as an Afro-Latino creative, finding her own knowledge and power in a society, whilst answering the fundamentally universal question; what, as human beings, connects us?
“An insightful, engaging and all-around affirmational auto-portrait from an Afro-Latina New Yorker with an ear for poetry and an eye for the ineffable, “Beba” never questions its own right to exist.” Variety.
Doors & refreshments open at 6pm for a 6.30pm start. Affordable refreshments and popcorn stand on site.
