Blue Girls Burn Fast: Amandla Stenberg Directed


Amandla Stenberg has added writer, director and producer to her growing list of talents. Last night, the star teased a clip from her short 20-minute film Blue Girls Burn Fast on Instagram. The film, shot and edited by Stenberg, follows Andy, as she navigates life with her “wanna be hip to your culture” foster mom and school. When Lea, her next door neighbor sneaks into her room and shakes up her life. Featuring intimate point of view shots, humor, and memorable quotes the film was a collaborative effort with Stenberg’s friends and also her NYU Film School submission.

So excited to officially share Blue Girls Burn Fast with you. @yaoimandel stars as Andy, and @whoooleeaah stars as Lea. It's a short I wrote, directed, shot, and edited. It was also my NYU application film. I made it with my best friends (@bailey_wait assisted directed, @novemberskyys was the boom operator) with a DSLR camera and lots of love. It's very personal to my heart. I hope you enjoy! Link in bio.
