As part of our Black, Bold & Brilliant series, Utah Film Center, in partnership with KRCL is excited to announce our upcoming film screening and post-discussion of BEBA. Join us Wednesday, March 1st from 7-9 pm at The City Library in Downtown Salt Lake City in watching first-time feature filmmaker Rebecca “Beba” Huntt undertake an unflinching exploration of her own identity in the remarkable coming-of-age documentary/cinematic memoir BEBA.
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 BEBA, 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.
We invite you to stay after the screening for a Black, Bold & Brilliant team post-film Q&A featuring film director Rebecca Huntt via zoom.

What is culinary diplomacy?
Culinary diplomacy is a form of cultural diplomacy that uses food and cuisine as a means to promote cross-cultural understanding and international relations. It involves the use of food and cuisine to create a bridge between different cultures and nations, fostering mutual respect and understanding through the sharing of food traditions, recipes, and culinary techniques. Culinary diplomacy can take many forms, from cultural exchange programs and food festivals to formal state dinners and international food summits. Through culinary diplomacy, nations can showcase their unique culinary heritage, build relationships, and promote cultural and economic exchange.
