Penny Edmonds and Catherine Kevin in conversation: settler-colonialism, film and family history. In Dispossession and the Making of Jedda: Hollywood in Ngunnawal Country Catherine Kevin brings together a history of race relations, pastoral boom and film-making. It is a personal account of coming to terms with a history of dispossession and colonial power relations in a place that offered her a strong sense of belonging and settler-colonial family heritage. Penny Edmonds is also a historian with an interest in settler family histories that are entwined within frontier violence. Like Catherine, she was born and raised on Ngunnawal country in Canberra.
