The first recording that was made in history was not a fiction, but something real that was shown for the first time on a big screen. The documentary is the oldest of the professions of cinema and without a doubt one of the most difficult to make.

Currently, documentary film has taken an innovative turn, blurring the barrier of fiction with reality, but always based on a true story.
