Drama Film
When used to define a specific genre or type of film or television programme , DRAMA is usually qualified with additional terms that specify its particular subgenre, such as "political drama ," "courtroom drama ," "historical drama ," "domestic drama ," or "comedy-drama ." These terms tend to indicate a particular setting or subject-matter, or else they qualify the otherwise serious tone of a drama with elements that encourage a broader range of moods . All forms of cinema or television that involve fictional stories are forms of drama in the broader sense if their storytelling is achieved by means of actors who represent (mimesis ) characters . In this broader sense, drama is a mode distinct from novels , short stories , and narrative poetry or songs . In the modern era before the birth of cinema or television, "drama" came to be used within the theatre as a generic term to describe a type of play that was neither a comedy nor a tragedy
