Burn Burn Burn
Alliance of Women Film Journalists Selection! Read an excerpt from Sherin Nicole's AWFJ review: "The sudden death of a loved one has a way of exposing our secrets—everything we’ve held on to comes pouring out. In grief, we are as vulnerable as when faced with our mortality and that need for healing makes us honest. Burn Burn Burn dissects human vanities and the dishonesties that block us from connecting, and it does it through an entirely preposterous pair of leading ladies, who only truly see themselves through the lens of their dead friend’s video messages."
Dan (Jack Farthing) is dead. He was only 29. Alex (Chloe Pirrie) and Seph (Laura Carmichael) loved him like a sibling. And now he’s left them his ashes to scatter across the UK, along with elaborate video instructions for doing so that will take them on an unforgettable road trip from London to Glastonbury, Cardiff, York and the Scottish Highlands. A dark comedy with warmth at its heart, BURN BURN BURN is just like Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, but in a Volvo and with a dead friend’s ashes in the glove compartment.
BURN BURN BURN premiered at the London Film Festival in 2015. “This confident, relaxed British feature debut by director Chanya Button and screenwriter Charlie Covell is a sort of millennials' mashup of Laughter in Paradise and Last Orders.” (The Guardian)
