For Rebeca Huntt ’12, the release of Beba, her debut, autobiographical documentary, came with some worry about how the film would be received. Members of her family are interviewed extensively throughout, with her own life serving as the subject of the film. After seeing audiences respond to the work, however, these fears have receded. “This film is bigger than my fear and what I think people are gonna think of me,” Huntt said in an interview with TIME.

Reflecting on the Moment
Reflecting on the Moment is a collaborative initiative spearheaded by the Dean of the College in consultation with the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. The new series invites alumni/ae, current undergraduates, faculty, and staff to have honest conversations about the current moment we are living in the wake of a global pandemic and systemic police brutality. The aim is to present models of inclusive dialogue, to draw from the rich personal experiences and expertise of our ever-developing and ever-changing community, and to present approaches for community activism and engagement in the name of racial equity and justice.
