I found this on the Internet and maybe this is a more useful term when describing issues with casting in movies. Or maybe it makes things more complicated. Who knows?

"Historical inaccuracy is Egyptian pyramids being built in the New Kingdom period. Geographic inaccuracy is casting all of the Egyptian roles with people from western Europe. A movie set in a certain geographic location has the right to cast characters that look like the people from that location without people complaining about things that should not be there."
