‘Docufiction’, one of the non–competitive sections that has been reorganized this year, highlights films that twist or expand the representation method of documentaries while presenting fiction as another dimension of documentation. A documentary can be said to be an active device that reveals a reality that has not been seen, heard, or spoken of in mainstream society, that is, a reality that has not been recognized in the past. Various works with a documentary in mind like this have shown that fiction, that is, fiction, is not just a fake that does not exist in reality but can be a form of expressing the truth and hidden reality that exists but is not yet revealed. At this time, fiction does not stay in a simple reenactment that supplements documentary but appears in an experiment to record the principle or appearance of this world through fiction. Docufiction reflects on the conventional boundaries and limits of documentary representation through the status and method of fiction, and shares attempts to expand the realm of representation with the audience.
