Q

WE DON'T NEED A MAP

OCTOBER 10TH, 7PM

A bold and provocative essay film by Warwick Thornton about the deeply spiritual meaning of the Southern Cross constellation for Aboriginal people. 

The Southern Cross is the most famous constellation in the southern hemisphere. Ever since colonization, it’s been claimed, appropriated and hotly-contested for ownership by a radical range of Australian groups. But for Aboriginal people the meaning of this heavenly body is deeply spiritual. And just about completely unknown. For a start, the Southern Cross isn’t even a cross – it’s a totem that’s deeply woven into the spiritual and practical lives of Aboriginal people. 

Imbued with Warwick’s cavalier spirit, this is a thought-provoking ride through Australia’s cultural and political landscape, confronting racism as it goes. It is a challenging, poetic exploration of who Australians are as a nation.

Q

BEBA

OCTOBER 11TH, 7PM

“I carry an ancient pain that I struggle to understand.” So begins the confessional narration that opens Rebeca “Beba” Huntt’s remarkable coming-of-age documentary/cinematic memoir, BEBA. What follows is a groundbreaking film eight years in the making, which sees Huntt investigate the historical, societal, and generational trauma she’s inherited and ponder how those centuries-old wounds have shaped her. Raw and intimate, powerful and profound, BEBA is a courageous, deeply human self-portrait of a restless artist hungry for knowledge and yearning for connection. Seeking to gain a more concrete understanding of her identity as a young Afro-Latina woman and an up-and-coming filmmaker, Huntt reflects on her childhood and adolescence in New York City as the daughter of a Dominican father and Venezuelan mother. After graduating from Bard College, Huntt returns to the rent-controlled one-bedroom apartment on Central Park West where she and her two siblings were raised. 

Weaving together music, 16mm film, poetry, and interview footage, Huntt traces her life’s journey from her family home to the mountains of South America, where she spent youthful summers, and then onto the campus where she formed pivotal friendships and began to discover her authentic voice. As Huntt strikes out into adulthood, intense racial and political unrest mounts, leaving her eagerly searching for a way to forge her own creative path and to find her place in the world. 

BEBA is written and directed by Huntt, who also produces with Sofia Geld. Petra Costa, Alyse Ardell Spiegel, Alessandra Orofino, Joy Bryant and Inuka Bacote-Capiga serve as the film’s executive producers.
