Most documentaries inform their audience about a topic or persuade them to believe a certain truth. Some documentary filmmakers do this through narration over the footage, some use the cinéma vérité style, and others take a personal approach by inserting themselves into the film's narrative. Other directors make poetic documentaries, which take a more experimental approach, weaving together images and music to create a specific emotional experience.
