Top definition
A film that uses documentary style to spread propaganda. Usually, docuganda will set out a premise and then attack any skeptics, rather than actually attempt to prove the case. The effect is that you either agree with the premise or you look like a fool. The word was specifically coined to refer to UFO "documentaries," such as "In Search Of," which provide anecdotal evidence for a phenomenon, draw a conclusion based on that evidence, and then attack any possible competing conclusions.
Everybody said that documentary was amazing and that it really opened their eyes. When I watched it, I was shocked by how manipulative it was. It was not a documentary; it was docuganda.
