OBIT

 

A fascinating and lively look at the inner workings of the team responsible for the New York Times' obituary section. A seemingly morbid subject that more often than not provides surprisingly life-affirming moments of humour, nostalgia and humanity. The writers approach each assignment with equal parts gravitas and curiosity as they compile the obituaries for public figures like Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson. Some obits are prepared and continually edited for still living famous figures. An engaging and warmly funny look at a vibrant celebration of life.
