I recovered the DVDs of Burned Bridge, title used in several countries for the Australian TV Series Heartland, aired between March and June 1994 on ABC Australia. A young Cate Blanchett is Elizabeth Ashton, a writer arrived in a small coastal community, divided by racial prejudices, later shaken by the murder of an Aboriginal girl.
“I am more of a watcher where Beth feels she has to participate and bravely goes where a lot of people wouldn’t. I believe in giving people space to reveal themselves and not always tackling things head on as she does, although she displays a great honesty in doing so. She is so challenged culturally and confronted by the privacy of the Aboriginal society and doesn’t like being shut out.” Cate Blanchett about her role

Everyone can join the fan collage! The idea is making a huge collage that express the amount of fans Cate has and the way she influenced each and every one of us.
How are we going to do it?
Everyone adds ONE picture to the collage. You can take a picture of the following stuff:
If you have an another idea, send it on the ask box and I’ll consider. 🙂
*A photo of you holding a happy birthday note
*A photo of something that reminds you of Cate (it can be a picture on your wall, a perfume, a book. Whatever you want)
*A photo of a happy birthday note you created in your native language (with the NAME AGE AND CONTRY DETAILS)
IMPORTANT: I’m going to add your Name, Age and Country on the photos I’ll receive, so make sure you write that also in the email.
All photos should arrive until MARCH 29TH, 2017. Send them all to the following adress: CBFbirthday2015@gmail.com (the same one from the past years lol)
If you have any questions you can ask Eden on tumblr / twitter / email .
Who can participate the project? – Everyone who wants to.
Can I send a picture of myself with a happy birthday poster? Sure.
Can you guarantee Cate will receive the book? – sadly not, but we will try our best to make this work.
For our new followers and the older ones, a quick recap, since there are two versions of Manifesto, it might get confusing:
– The exhibition version (12 screen installations, more then two hours long) is touring museums and art festivals since December 2015, and is currently on show in Sydney, Hannover and Stuttgart. It’s set to open in Munich, Paris, Aarhus and Amsterdam in the next six months. On the right sidebar there is the complete list;
– The linear or movie version it’s a shorter work, acquired by The Match Factory, that released the trailer in this post, and set to debut at the Sundance Film Festival, then Rotterdam and Gothenburg in the next weeks.
If we skipped any museum/festival, please let us know!
The linear version of Manifesto conquers another film festival and an award. The Göteborg Film Festival (Gothenburg, Sweden) assigns the Ingmar Bergman International Debut Award to Julian Rosefeldt’s masterpiece! The festival has also set 3 screenings of the movie, starting on February 2nd. More info at the official site
Last Sunday, Cate Blanchett made her Broadway debut in The Present, a Sydney Theatre Company production. After the official opening night of the play, new material became available such as new stills, reviews and the program. Enjoy!
The Theater Mania website has revealed two new stills of The Present. We’ve also update the gallery with new photos. Enjoy the updates and the article from Theater Mania!
The Sydney Theatre Company’s Broadway production of Andrew Upton’s The Present, starring Cate Blanchett and Richard Roxburgh, has released a pair of production photos. The work runs at the Ethel Barrymore Theater and opens January 8.
Blanchett heads the cast as Anna Petrovna, alongside Roxburgh (Moulin Rouge) as Platonov. They are joined by the original Australian company, made up of Anna Bamford (Maria), Andrew Buchanan (Osip), David Downer (Yegor), Eamon Farren (Kirrill), Martin Jacobs (Alexei), Brandon McClelland (Dimitri), Jacqueline McKenzie (Sophia), Marshall Napier (Ivan), Susan Prior (Sasha), Chris Ryan (Sergei), and Toby Schmitz (Nikolai). Everyone in the cast will make their Broadway debuts.
Directed by John Crowley (Brooklyn), the production had its world premiere in 2015. Inspired by Anton Chekhov’s Platonov, Upton’s adaptation is set in the mid-1990s in an old country house where friends gather to celebrate the birthday of Anna Petrovna, an independent but compromised widow. At the center is the acerbic and witty Platonov, along with his wife, his former students, and their friends and partners. Boiling away inside their comfortable appearances is a mess of unfinished, unresolved relationships, fueled by 20 years of denial, regret, and thwarted desire.
The production features scenic and costume design by Alice Babidge, lighting design by Nick Schlieper, and sound design and musical compositions by Stefan Gregory.
