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.”
