Nicole Hewitt is a visual artist working in 16 mm film, video and installation.
Her work is concerned with the gap/bond between fiction and documentary and the truth claims of the cinematic image. Her most recent work In Time uses the tropes of observational documentary in which the narrator is implied, although not present to build dramatic situations narrated from specific points of view. The film is based in a ballroom dancing club in Zagreb, Croatia.
