    The Hurricane is a 1937 film produced by Samuel Goldwyn and directed by John Ford, which was screened in Australia in 1938. A critique of French colonialism in the South Pacific, it was partly filmed in American Samoa. The poem also references the current plight of the Republic of Kiribati, threatened with annihilation due to rising seas caused by climate change.
