“This small lizard man would like to tell NYC that a film I was a part of called As You Are is finally coming to theaters this Friday at @villageeastcinema,” Amandla shared on Instagram before the event along with the photo below. “Showtimes starting 2/24 are as follows: 11:30am / 2:00pm / 4:30pm / 7:00pm / 7:55pm some cast and crew will be at the 7pm screening.”

Amandla Stenberg, who you probably first met when she broke your heart as Rue in the Hunger Games, is 2017′s indie It Girl!

In her latest project, the 18-year-old actress is teaming up with Charlie Heaton (aka Jonathan Byers from season one of the breakout Netflix hit Stranger Things) for the teen drama As You Are.

The storyline centers around three teens who become each others’ saving grace until changing relationships and emerging secrets force them to look at themselves and see how far they are willing to go live the lives they choose.

Amandla is also starring in the much-anticipated movie Everything, Everything, based on the novel by Nicola Yoon. JJJ got an exclusive look here.

As You Are starts rolling out to selective theaters this week.

Maddy (Amandla Stenberg) and Olly (Nick Robinson) get super close in this brand new still from the upcoming movie Everything, Everything, given exclusively to JustJaredJr.com.

Based on the novel by Nicola Yoon, the film tells the unlikely love story of Maddy, a smart, curious and imaginative 18-year-old who due to an illness cannot leave the protection of the hermetically sealed environment within her house, and Olly, the boy next door who won’t let that stop them.

Maddy is desperate to experience the much more stimulating outside world, and the promise of her first romance. Gazing through windows and talking only through texts, she and Olly form a deep bond that leads them to risk everything to be together…even if it means losing everything.

Everything, Everything, co-produced by MGM and Warner Brothers, will hit theaters on May 19.

Amandla Stenberg on Shaving Her Head: 'Self-Acceptance Has Nothing To Do With My Hair'

Amandla Stenberg on Shaving Her Head: 'Self-Acceptance Has Nothing To Do With My Hair'

Amandla Stenberg is fierce and fresh-faced on the cover of the latest issue of Dazed magazine, available February 16th.

The 18-year-old actress also shared the cover with actor Ashton Sanders, where they opened up about movie roles, using their platforms for change and appearances. Check it:

Ashton on how Moonlight has impacted him: “Moonlight has changed my life externally, but also internally…spiritually as well. Mentally.”

Amandla on cutting her hair off: “It was emotional, because I understood how my hair had been a symbol of self-love and self-acceptance for some people, and I understood how having that representation was important to some young girls. Now I feel like self-acceptance has nothing to do with my hair. I feel like my belief in myself – my acceptance of myself, my ethnicity, my blackness, my everything – is there whether or not I have hair. And so I think it was important for a period to have my hair be a symbol of self-love, but now I know that my self-love is there, whether I’m bald or have a full ’fro.”

Ashton on his character in Moonlight: “To be that lonely at such a young age for so long, you would feel a certain type of way. That is how deeply I dug into his personality. Even talking about it right now, man, it’s super sad, and you feel it. I had withdrawals from playing Chiron.”

Amandla on using her platform for change: “I’ve been thinking about this a lot recently because, growing up having this platform, I feel a consistent responsibility to utilise it well. I think, for a long amount of time, the most effective thing was to use my platform to speak out openly about the topics that were important to me, such as cultural appropriation, black women feeling their power and learning how to have self-confidence – especially black teenage girls. That was really important for me for a period, but I’m not sure it’s the most effective (thing) any more. I feel like social media is a little oversaturated with some of those conversations – not to say that they aren’t important – but I think now is a really critical moment to move from conversations to action.”

Amandla Stenberg Defends 'Where Hands Touch' Even More in Eye-Opening Tumblr Post

Amandla Stenberg Defends 'Where Hands Touch' Even More in Eye-Opening Tumblr Post

Amandla Stenberg is getting even more behind her upcoming movie, Where Hands Touch.

The actress, who shared the first image from the Amma Asante-directed flick, headed to her Tumblr after hearing more uprise about the movie’s plot.

“Y’all, I’m out here trying to do the work. I’m not your target,” she wrote in defense of the movie, “The world is much larger than this bubble. If you jump to conclusions and make generalizations about others out of fear, you are doing the same thing as the people you claim to morally oppose.”

When Hands Touch centers on “Leyna, daughter of a white German mother and a black father, meets Lutz, the son of a prominent SS officer, and a member of the Hitler Youth. They fall helplessly in love, putting their lives at risk as all around them the persecution of Jews and those deemed ‘non-pure’ slowly unfolds.”

Amandla Stenberg Defends New Movie 'Where Hands Touch' on Instagram

Amandla Stenberg Defends New Movie 'Where Hands Touch' on Instagram

The first glimpse of Amandla Stenberg‘s new movie — the one she shaved her head for — is out and some fans aren’t taking it too well.

Here’s the summary for Where Hands Touch: “Leyna, daughter of a white German mother and a black father, meets Lutz, the son of a prominent SS officer, and a member of the Hitler Youth. They fall helplessly in love, putting their lives at risk as all around them the persecution of Jews and those deemed ‘non-pure’ slowly unfolds.

Does their love stand a chance amidst violence and hatred?”

Both Amandla and director Amma Asante have defended the project, which is based on historical facts.

“It has been a passion of mine to tell this story for many years — to shine a light on the existence of German children of color who were forced to grow up under Hitler’s rule, labelled as ‘Rhineland bastards,’” Amma shared. “Completing this film brings together everything I am as filmmaker.”

Amandla added on her Instagram with the pic: “This film isn’t simply a love story, but rather a portrayal of human truth in a world of atrocious violence created by a dictator that children are forced to navigate.”

The film is set to later this year.

Amandla, along with Avan Jogia and Kristina Bazan, is pictured at the premiere of Kenzo‘s new film, Music is My Mistress, in Los Angeles this week.
