HOLLYWOOD REPORTER: ‘Beba’ - Film Review | TIFF 2021
In her debut documentary, Rebeca Huntt excavates her family’s past in order to understand her present.
Rebeca Huntt demands attention the moment Beba, her debut documentary premiering at TIFF, begins. “You are now entering my universe,” she says. “I am the lens, the subject, the authority.” How powerful it is to hear a Black woman claim these words and declare her presence in this way. The implications of this statement — its assertion of strength and admission of vulnerability — hum throughout this absorbing experimental documentary about a young woman’s journey to find herself.
