film genre in which fictional events are presented in documentary style to create a parody
A mockumentary is a movie that pretends to be a documentary. It pretends to tell a true story, but is really a work of fiction. The word is a combination (a portmanteau word) of "mock" (meaning fake or false) and "documentary".
