POV: Beba - Rebeca Huntt’s Poetic Ode to the Self
Updated: Jun 7
Beba is a beautiful, raw, tender movie. An astonishing autobiographical documentary debut by Rebeca “Beba” Huntt, it is memoir steeped in bouts of surrealism, treading the fresh, experimental, but still somehow familiar path of films like Terence Nance’s An Oversimplification of Her Beauty. It has a loose, experimental visual style reminiscent of the type of ambitious, ambiguous storytelling found in certain neo-soul music videos from young Black artists like Arlo Parks’ “Too Good”, or the Sliding Doors-esque video for “If You Care” by Q.
