The confluence of history and audiovisual media, more specifically the documentary of a biographical nature, based on interviews, has given rise to a genre that can be called "biofilmmaking" - in a direct analogy to the etymology of the word biography: "a writing of life" - and which bears problematics and reflections shared in common with biography and historiography.
