The first documentary to look into the world of editorial obituaries, via the legendary obit desk at The New York Times, this is a lively and inspiring look at a handful of dedicated journalists who contribute to our cultural memory. Ten hours before newspapers hit neighborhood doorsteps (and ten minutes before news hits the web), an obit writer is racing against deadline to sum up a long and newsworthy life in under 1,000 words. With humor and insight, the film goes beyond the bylines to invite some of the most essential questions we ask ourselves about life, memory and the inevitable passage of time.

The Times’ participants include William McDonald, Margalit Fox, Bruce Weber, William Grimes, Douglas Martin, Paul Vitello and Jeff Roth. Consulting Producer & Archivist: Kenn Rabin. Director: Vanessa Gould. US 2016) 95 min.
