Marama Warren writes: The 2019–20 Currowan bushfire was unprecedented in its extent and intensity. It burned across south east NSW for over 74 days. Three human lives were lost, 300 houses and 500,000 hectares of forest and farmland were burnt. The cost to flora and fauna and the toll on our rural communities was devastating.
I made Ablaze to record the intensity of the experience – of the time we shared the terrifying uncertainty that millions of people in the world live with every day.
