Amandla Stenberg has delivered her first original film debut. Titled Blue Girls Run Fast, the 18-minute short features a foster teen Andy (played by Leeza Lester), whose life gets shaken up when her neighbour (Julia Rocha) climbs in her window one evening, after failing to successfully run away. She has called it a "highly personal" film and was her application to the NYU filmmaker's course, where she now attends. "I think film is the medium that shapes culture the most," Amandla told Dazed. "Especially in America. I think the people that we see in the films are the people who we view society as, you know? And I think that’s why there needs to be more representation for different kinds of people."
