Lighthouse International Film Society will screen OBIT, on April 28th at 8:00 at the Foundation of the Arts and Sciences. Q&A to follow with Award winning Director and Filmmaker-Vanessa Gould.
How do you put a life into 500 words? Ask the staff obituary writers at the New York Times. Each day they shine a literary light on three or four unusual lives under relentless deadlines. OBIT gives a first ever glimpse into the daily rituals, joys, and existential angst of the Times obit writers, as they chronicle life after death on the front lines of history.
At The New York Times, a particular team of writers is entrusted with reflecting upon the luminaries, icons, and world leaders of our day. Here, we are introduced to those responsible for crafting these unequaled obituaries. As we are taken through their painstaking process, we learn about the pressures accompanying a career spent shaping the story of a life.
