This screening will feature an introduction by Michelle Blumenberg, director of the Tucson Jewish Museum and Holocaust Center, and after the screening we’ll have a Q&A on stage with director/writer/producer Alana Waksman.

When 22 year-old Rae, a descendant of Holocaust survivors, is targeted by Neo-Nazis in Billings, Montana, her ancestors’ trauma becomes real. After hitting a low, Rae returns home to her mother and uncovers the truth about a childhood accident.

We Burn Like This walks through a minefield of emotions.” – Jared Mobarak, The Film Stage

As antisemitism continues to rise in the community, we follow Rae on her journey to forgive herself, her mother, and the broken world. Inspired by true events, this powerful debut feature from Alana Waksman is a coming-of-age story showing the inherited effects of historical trauma and the strength of survival and healing. Starring Madeline Coghlan (Holidays, ABC’s  The Rookie) and Devery Jacobs (Reservation Dogs, American Gods). (Dir. by Alana Waksman, 2021, USA, 81 mins., Not Rated)
