Reenactment - between documentary and fiction

One of the methods used in documentary filmmaking is reenactment where the possible division line between documentary and fiction is blending. Cooking History by Peter Kerekes uses the method to offer a poetic point of view on the military conflicts ranging from World War II to the Chechen War. Watch the film with your students and discuss. No registration is needed.
