Every time I look up, Amandla Stenberg is doing something amazing. She has now made her second short film where she acted as director. producer, casting director, camera operator and editor, called Blue Girls Burn Fast. Does this kid ever sit still?
The film is a coming of age story that follows Andy, a world weary teen living ins foster care. Leeza Lester stars as Andy, while Julia Rocha, Kelley Smith Wait, Duke Nicholson, and Kyleigh Booker round out the cast.
Amandla posted two versions, a short and a longer version. I’ve embedded the longer version here. Enjoy!
