Full Trailer for 'New Gold Mountain' About Chinese Miners in Australia
"Why was she out in the bush that night?" Madman Films in Australia has released another trailer for the DVD debut of this mini-series titled New Gold Mountain, which originally aired on SBS TV last year in Australia. The series is set in the middle of the 1850s in Australia about immigrants arriving to work in the gold mines at the Bendigo Goldfields. The charismatic "headman" of the White Hills Chinese mining camp suddenly finds himself struggling to maintain the very fragile harmony between the Chinese and European diggers, and authorities, when a murdered European woman is discovered to have links with the Chinese community. The Australian TV series stars Yosan An, Alyssa Sutherland, Christopher Baker, Dan Spielman, Mabel Li, and Sam Wang. This looks like an intense series about a real incident from history involving racism and brutality. "We all try to survive… it's just a question of the price we have to pay for it."
