    • Synopsis
    • The New York Times is one of the few remaining publications who have maintained a staff of obituary writers, a once obscure section of the newspaper which has grown in prominence and readership over the years. Every day the small staff of writers cover the deaths, and lives of noteworthy individuals. The result is the first draft of history and Vanessa Gould’s illuminating documentary invites some of the most essential questions we ask ourselves about life, memory and the and the inevitable passage of time.
