'Bedevil is a thematically linked trilogy of multiculturalisms, ghosts from Queensland's past: Greeks, Chinese, Torres Strait Islanders and Aboriginals are posited against an American GI and the blondest of children. Tracey Moffatt awakes the ghosts of her own past, her Aboriginal–Irish heritage and, in so doing, taps into the ghosts of all our pasts.' BIFF
'One Night the Moon tells of the search for a small white girl who wanders off one night from the family's remote home to follow the full moon. Her father won't allow the black tracker Albert on his land to let him participate in the search, instead fruitlessly leading a band of white men across the desolate country, decimating every trace of the girl's path.' BIFF
'Set in the late 1960s the McCrae girls — four talented young singers from a remote Aboriginal mission — are plucked from obscurity and branded Australia's version of The Supremes. The girls dream of becoming as big as their Motown idols and they get their chance when they're flown to Vietnam to entertain the troops, opening their eyes to a whole new world of sex, war, politics and soul.' MIFF
