Wikipedia wrote:
Film (or "cinematic essays") consist of the evolution of a theme or an idea rather than a plot per se. From another perspective, an essay film could be defined as a documentary film visual basis combined with a form of commentary that contains elements of self-portrait (rather than autobiography), where the signature (rather than the life-story) of the filmmaker is apparent. The cinematic essay often blends documentary, fiction, and experimental film making using a tones and editing styles."
