Did you know there is a genre of films around 1900 which were called "fake films"? Essentially people would present their films as actual recordings of current events - wars , sports matches, famous passion plays, etc. - but they would in fact be made in a studio or another unrelated location. There were also films which amounted to present-day "fake news" - purported recordings of sensationalist events (lynching, murder, etc.) which actually never took place.
