Film History and Meaning : do you have to cite information for docuementaries?

do you have to cite information for docuementaries?

For example, if you were making a documentary on something like depression, would you have to cite the facts that you presented in the film at the end of the movie the same as you would do in a research paper? I'm in the process of trying to make a documentary (not on depression) and would like to present facts that I will be getting out of a book, but would like to steer clear of legal trouble.

There's no technical rule that requires citing sources for documentaries, though you should probably do so anyways.
