Within the storied walls of The New York Times, a team of writers is entrusted with reflecting upon the lives of luminaries, icons, and world leaders of our day.

Vanessa Gould’s fascinating documentary, OBIT, introduces us to the unseen women and men responsible for crafting the unequaled obituaries of the NYT. As we’re taken through their painstaking process of digging through years of accomplishments, we learn about the particular pressures that accompany a career spent trying to elegantly and respectfully shape the story of a life for an audience of millions.
