ABSTRACT
Documentary film has changed to such a degree that it is now approximating contemporary fiction film. In fact, documentary film borrows many features that belong to fiction, thus acquiring the same characteristics and becoming as popular as post-modern cinema. In this essay, I set out the characteristics of post-modern documentary, and secondly, discuss whether it is possible to think of Latin American non-fiction as postmodern. As an example, I analyze briefly the Brazilian documentary Bus 174 (2002), which seems to present several of the elements described by the authors of the articles examined here.
