A 1973 interview with a 51-year-old Hone Tuwhare at the Maori Writers' and Artists' Conference, at Te Kaha's Tukaki Marae. One of New Zealand’s best loved and lauded poets, Tuwhare speaks of the various influences on his writing -  sex, religion, trade unionism and communism - to name a few. Poet Rowley Habib sits alongside Hone in the interview and contributes to the conversation occasionally. This documentary also features a poetry reading from The Globe Theatre, Dunedin.
