Description

The oddly-named 'docu-drama' is a cross between a documentary and a drama.

Real events are typically dramatized using actors. This may well be cut with interviews with the real people involved.

Actual footage of real and significant events may be included.

Example

Docu-dramas seldom reach the movie screen but are common on television. An example is one done about the Waco siege, and included interviews from participants and dramatization of some of the events.

Discussion

Docu-dramas are different from dramatizations of real-life events in that they use documentary techniques, such as interviews and journalists talking from where events occurred.

The docu-drama format is sometimes used in an entirely fictitious situation, with the intent of fooling the audience into believing that the story is actually true.

They are useful in change stories in the way that real-life and drama are mixed up into a realistic but exciting blend.
