From The Booth

While America's current political regime has little regard for verifiable facts, the New York Times still maintains high fact-checking standards and prides itself as America's newspaper of record. Perhaps nowhere more so than in its obituary department. This fascinating doc delves into the lives and work of the ever-shrinking staff at the Times’s Obit department as they comb the photo and clippings library (nicknamed “the morgue”) for the histories of the recently deceased. Their daily task is to research and write, on very short notice, a true and respectful account of someone's life. Highly Recommended for anyone interested in writing, journalism, history and how life and death are remembered.
