Mini Documentary


What is a documentary film?

  • A documentary film is a movie that attempts, in some way, to document reality.
  • The scenes are carefully chosen and arranged, they are not scripted
  • The people in a documentary film are not actors.
  • Sometimes, a documentary film may rely on voice-over narration to describe what is happening in the footage; in other films, the footage will speak for itself.
  • Often, a documentary film will include interviews with the people in the film.
