Last year, Amandla Stenberg announced she was heading to film school in New York.

I want to be a director… I want to make films that feature people who don’t get to be leads all the time.”

And now it seems we don’t have to wait too long for her directorial debut, as her short film Blue Girls Burn Fast has just landed.

Starring Leeza Lester and Julia Rocha in the leading roles, it’s a coming-of-age story about love, friendship and growing pains.

As we expect from Amandla, it also features social commentary on race, acceptance and identity, and has a totally delicious ethereal quality that has you daydreaming about lost summers and past lovers (which, you know, is never a bad thing.

The film was written, produced, shot, directed and edited by Amandla, and – she explains on Instagram – doubles as her NYU film school application.

Anyway, enough chat from us. Take a look for yourselves, below…
