Reality can be signified in multiple ways. The documentary is well suited for representing it, primarily in its ability “to convey to us the impression of authenticity” (Bill Nichols, Introduction to Documentary). Documentary film and narrative film are often united to create hybrid products. This panel discusses how Italian filmmakers have documented Italian history and society, and their reality, through documentaries, mockumentaries, docufictions, docudramas, or narrative films.
