Documentary with elements of fiction, especially dramatised re-enactment.
Docudrama (as opposed to docufiction and dramadoc) is shot entirely after the events took place and the element of drama is relatively big. It can be described as a film inspired by real events, shot in documentary style.

It can be also called false documentary.

Often confused with:
docufiction – basically documentary (shot in the time and place of events) with elements of fiction)
drama documentary (dramadoc) – basically documentary with re-enacted elements (or re-enacted film) supposed to keep as much as possible to the original events.
