Anderberg was an avid documentary filmmaker parallel to his work in fiction films. His documentary work is arguably comparable to that of the enthofiction of Jean Rouch, as his early documentaries melded documentary and fiction film strategies in their discourse. A similar rhetoric is also found in his later work.

Anderberg made frequent trips to Latin America following the production of Anaconda, documenting encounters with indigenous people of the jungles, something he did up to his final film Kondormannen 2003.

He collaborated several times with explorer Rolf Blomberg on a series of features and short films with an ethnographic content.
