In this piece, New York Times reporter Margalit Fox, explains how a feature-length documentary about The Times’s obituaries desk came to be.
“[Director Vanessa Gould’s] concerns as a documentarian center on the life of the mind, the making of art and the painstaking process by which the two can be combined. “
“Obituary writers traffic in the macabre, but Vanessa Gould’s charming documentary about The New York Times’ scribes proves they are far more than their downbeat reputations imply.” – The Huffington Post
