This short paper engages in a brief critical reflection on the historical and theoretical journey of the documentary film. It does so through the analysis of the highly meta-textual, deconstructive and self-reflexive documentary Salaam Cinema (1995) by the controversial Iranian director Mohsen Makhmalbaf.
