citing a film like a documentary is

going to be a little bit different from

citing something like a book or a poem

where the citation information is always

provided for you in the publication with

a film you're going to have to kind of

poke around a little bit to find the

information that you need handbooks and

websites like Purdue owl will show you

that you need to include a director's

name you need to include the title of

the documentary if the performers in the

film or the documentary are important

you want to include that you want to

include the company that produced the

documentary or film you want to include

the year that the film was published and

then you have to end the citation with

the word film what's so interesting

about citing a documentary though is

that you can move the information around
