OBIT is a touching and heartwarming documentary that explores the world of the remarkable writers at the New York Times who work in the Obituary Department. Focusing on a small team who approach their work with journalistic integrity and narrative flair, the writers must detail the extraordinary lives of these great individuals into the cultural memory. Going beyond the byline and into the minds of those chronicling life after death, the film invites some of the most essential questions we ask ourselves about life, memory, and the inevitable passage of time.
“It is fascinating to watch the writers strive to do right by their subjects, warts and all." ~ Washington Post
