Natalie Kestecher

University of North Carolina Press

Another Australian feature maker, Natalie Kestecher records interviews and combines them with music—and sometimes mixes in fictional fables that she writes and narrates. It’s “easier for me to create characters than to find them,” she says. Any news director would (rightly) spew coffee across the newsroom if a reporter said such a thing. These pieces of Natalie’s are not strictly documentary—not everything in them is factually true—but we chose to include her in Reality Radio because she stirs her fables together with traditional interviews, thereby putting audio nonfiction to strikingly creative use. She is not trying to pass off fiction as fact. Her work is not fraud. It’s art.

Keywords:   creative radio nonfiction, fable, non-traditional documentary
