Available on iTunes, MUBI, CuriosityStream, Prime Video
A critically acclaimed documentary about the staff of obituary writers at The New York Times. Every day, these writers deposit the details of three or four extraordinary lives into the cultural memory – life’s stories spun amid the daily beat of war, politics, and football scores. It’s some of the best writing in journalism. Documentary storytelling in print. Mirrors of life’s great stories. Neatly framed vignettes of worlds that will vanish along with their notable stars. It’s amazing what goes on in the obits.
Starring Bruce Weber, William McDonald, Margalit Fox
