The first film to be called a documentary was Robert Flaherty’s 1926 silent movie Moana, which recorded the life of a group of Polynesian islanders in Samoa. In a review John Grierson declared the film had “documentary value,” meaning a film depicting actuality rather than fiction.

Fahrenheit 9/11  holds the record as the highest-grossing documentary of all time ($222 million worldwide, $119 million in the US alone).
