The conference studies the topic of instability and the mobility of the boundaries of fiction and documentary films in the modern era, which is referred to as “post-truth” era when the problem of authenticity is extremely relevant. Visual and, in particular, cinematic images dominate the sphere of culture, and the concept of “reality” is becoming more and more ambiguous. There is a need to rethink the concept of authenticity in cinema, especially when we are talking about the documentary component of cinema, its appeal to directors and new relevance.
