Amandla Stenberg Directed, Shot & Edited a Short Film titled ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ – Watch it Now

Amandla Stenberg Directed, Shot & Edited a Short Film titled 'The Yellow Wallpaper' - Watch it Now

Thanks to Orlando Jones for the heads-up on Twitter (he co-stars with Amandla Stenberg in Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow,” playing father and daughter).

Here’s a short film directed, shot and edited (yup, she did all of that) by Stenberg titled, “The Yellow Wallpaper,” which is based on the short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, that documents the experiences of a woman who’s suffering from a mental illness, when she moves into an old house to help clear her mind.

Apparently (or maybe not-so much) Stenberg, who’s just 15 years old by the way, might have behind-the-camera aspirations; Or it may just be a passing fancy. 

The short is classified as “a student film,” by the way.

Did I mention she directed, shot and edited the 13 1/2-minute piece?

this is deep!!

this shit light!!!


His acting is atrocious. Her monologues were decent. I thought it was going in the direction of Barton Fink. Where the heat and humidity was driving him insane and the wall paper peeling amplified the effect. Or the yellow wallpaper had black mold and he was using it to keep her permanently sick.


She's got skills. Lots of good shots. Visuals outshine the story.
