Drawing on Roscoe and Hight's theory of mock-documentary, the authoress examines a few selected fictional film texts that approximate factual codes and conventions for parodic purposes. She traces director's clues in films, indicating the genuine status of the texts and reveals elements of the play between the text authors with the audience. The following films have been analyzed: William Karel's 'Operation Lune/Dark Side of the Moon', Aleksey Fedorchenko's 'First on the Moon', Petr Zelenka's 'Year of the Devil' and Vit Klusak and Filip Remund's 'Czech Dream'. The authoress mentions two examples of mock-documentary techniques used in Polish productions.
