The daughter of a European refugee mother and a journalist father, Voumard recounts her passionate but questioning relationship with journalism and the nature of the interview. Insights of a career are played out against the changing nature of journalism, there are portraits of Kings Cross, of growing up in suburban Melbourne, her father’s love of journalism, and a family journey to the Bonegilla Migrant Reception Centre where her mother’s Australian life began. Throughout it all Voumard is a sharpshooter, never afraid to hold a mirror up to her own life and practices as a journalist, to dig deep into the ethics of journalism and the use of power, and to sensitively explore the intertwined nature of life and work and personal relationships.
