Summary "Romaine Moreton uses poetry to make us rethink our attitudes towards Aboriginal people and culture. But this is not a PC rant ... The last poem 'I Shall Surprise You By My Will' is delivered with a triumphant and menacing punch."- Sydney Morning Herald. "If books aren't supposed to make good TV, then what hope for poetry ... Yet this half-hour program offers a few glimpses into the television potential of something so many people still enjoy: reading ... her work draws not so much from her own experience, but of Australia's wider Indigenous community. Dispossession, dislocation and identity issues are key motifs ... Many of her poems reflect that thinking: they are forward looking, empowering rather than foolishly optimistic ..." - The Age. * WINNER! BEST INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM, W.O.W. International Film Festival, Sydney 2000. Poems in order of performance in the film: Taxi Driver Don't Let It Make You Over Come To Me Seasonal Revelations Ode To Barbie Strange Recipe Gather Round I Shall Surprise You By My Will.
