David Holzman's Diary is a 1967 American film, directed by Jim McBride, which interrogates the art of documentary-making. It may be considered a docufiction: paradoxically, despite the film is in fact a false autobiography and documentary, «a fairy tale», it represents the filmmaker's life and experience and also the world in which the action takes place with documentary realist techniques. The mirror metaphor is explicit in the film as code for reality. It tells the story of a young man making a documentary of his life, who discovers something important about himself while making the movie.
