Juhasz & Lerner (2006) argue that
these kinds of documentaries are similar to fiction film because It has similar
features of fiction film for e.g. guiding the actors, lighting, manipulation of
the actual story. There is always a very intimate relationship between a
filmmaker and the topic. Furthermore, sometimes a filmmaker is bound to create
propaganda between the subject and viewer. By the propaganda I mean the fake
(fictional) documentaries which CIA has been producing to persuade their own
citizens and to spread the same persuasion overseas particularly after 9/11. It
is worth quoting Jim McDermott “You could make people do anything if they are
afraid”
