“I Want To Be Joan was not planned and shot in a traditional way, ie. from a script. It was made through editing conversations with women who attended the United Women’s Convention in Christchurch in 1977. It was a venture of involvement, and its creation has become a significant experience in many women’s lives. The purpose in making the film was to document the reality of women’s oppression. I want it to be used as a basis for discussion. In content, as well as 30 minutes of dialogue, there are examples of fine art from painters, Jacqueline Fahey, Robin White, and Lynne Zylstra, and Rachel McAlpine reads her poem, This is me Sheila. [...] The six interviewees in the film were selected from twenty-two original interviews.” - (Beth, Stephanie, “Travelling with I Want to be Joan”, Broadsheet, no. 66, January 1979, pp.20 -23 )
