Pierre Huyghe's "The Third Memory" (1999) presents a "reenactment" of the
botched bank robbery that was the subject of Lumet's "Dog Day
Afternoon"(1975). It features the real-life bank robber John Wojtowicz, who
was played by Pacino in Lumet's film. Wojtowicz walks around a reconstructed
set of the bank from "Dog Day Afternoon" and tries to remember the events of
the actual robbery, but his memory has evidently been strongly influenced by
the cinematic depiction of the robbery. So, in effect, Huyghe's film is as
much a reenactment of "Dog Day Afternoon" as of a real historical event.
Hope this helps.
