We Burn Like This
First look at writer/director Alana Waksman's feature debut.

Writer/director Alana Waksman makes her feature debut with We Burn Like This. Inspired by a true story, the film stars Madeleine Coghlan as a young Jewish woman who finds herself targeted by Neo-Nazis in smalltown Montana.

Devery Jacobs, Kendra Mylnechuk, Angelo Rizzo, Casidee Riley and Megan Folsom also star.

"At a time when antisemitism is on the rise, this film continues to feel important to share in order to inspire understanding, discussion, and compassion," Waksman says. "My intent is for audiences to feel what Rae (Madeleine Coghlan) feels as she navigates the process of healing intergenerational trauma alongside her best friend Chrissy B. (Devery Jacobs) - who has her own historical trauma. I am so thrilled that Freestyle Digital Media values our story and is helping us to reach a wider audience. This film has been a seven-year journey, and I’m indebted to everyone who has helped will this film into existence with me throughout these years."

We Burn Like This is on US VOD from June 28th. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

Check out the trailer and poster below.

The official synopsis reads:

Inspired by true events, WE BURN LIKE THIS is a coming-of-age story that shows the inherited effects of historical trauma and the strength of survival and healing. When 22-year-old Rae, a descendant of Holocaust survivors, is targeted by Neo-Nazis in Billings, Montana, her ancestors' trauma becomes real. As antisemitism continues to rise in the community, we follow Rae on her journey to forgive herself, her mother, and the broken world.
