Mockumentary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A mockumentary (a portmanteau of the words mock and documentary), is a type of film or television show in which fictional events are presented in documentary style to create a parody.[1] These productions are often used to analyze or comment on current events and issues by using a fictional setting, or to parody the documentary form itself.[2] They may be either comedic or dramatic in form, although comedic mockumentaries are more common. A dramatic mockumentary (sometimes referred to as docufiction) should not be confused with docudrama, a fictional genre in which dramatic techniques are combined with documentary elements to depict real events.

Mockumentaries are often presented as historical documentaries, with B roll and talking heads discussing past events, or as cinéma vérité pieces following people as they go through various events. Though the precise origins of the genre are not known, examples emerged during the 1950s, when archival film footage became relatively easy to locate.[2] A very early example was a short piece on the "Swiss Spaghetti Harvest" that appeared as an April fools' joke on the British television program Panorama in 1957.

The term "mockumentary" is thought to have been popularized in the mid-1980s when This Is Spinal Tap director Rob Reiner used it in interviews to describe that film. It is not known with certainty when the term "mock-documentary" was first used,[3] but the Oxford English Dictionary notes appearances of "mockumentary" from 1965.[4]
