SPOTLIGHT ON AMANDLA STENBERG
Actress and activist Amandla Stenberg has been on the rise since her impressive turn as Rue in The Hunger Games. All of 19 years, Stenberg has made her mark in movies (Columbiana, Rio 2, As You Are, Everything, Everything), television (Sleepy Hollow, Mr. Robinson) music (she’s released two albums as half of the group Honeywater and made a cameo in Beyoncé’s Lemonade). This Most Influential Teen, as reported by Time Magazine, is ready to launch with back-to-back performances in The Hate U Give, The Darkest Minds, and Where Hands Touch.
OUR SPOTLIGHT PROGRAM features an onstage conversation with Amandla Stenberg, a screening of THE HATE U GIVE, and the presentation of the MVFF Award. Join us after the program for a celebratory reception at Outdoor Art Club in Mill Valley.
THE HATE U GIVE

Starr (a sensational Amandla Stenberg) is the queen of code switching: living one version of herself in her Black community and another at her predominantly white private high school. When she becomes the sole witness to the shooting death of her friend by a white policeman, the two Starrs have no choice but to collide—often explosively.
