About the film:

World premiere at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival. First-time feature filmmaker Rebeca “Beba” Huntt undertakes an unflinching exploration of her own identity in this remarkable coming-of-age documentary. 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. Huntt searches for a way to forge her own creative path amid a landscape of intense racial and political unrest.

“A gorgeous visual memoir laced with poetry, memory, and truth.”

—Nick Allen for RogerEbert
