A foreigner (Wick) comes to town for the first time. One morning he sees, it seems, a parasitic worm in the ear of his sleeping wife (Abdullina). With suspicion and paranoia, he explores the strange, new city. But who is infected, he or the unknown world around him?
“Obit,” Vanessa Gould’s lively documentary about the New York Times’s obituary section — which unfortunately doesn’t have a wide release date — is a timely look at, as obituarist Margalit Fox puts it in the film, “the precise point at which [a person] becomes history.”
Good news! OBIT has been acquired by Kino Lorber for US distribution in early 2017. Stay tuned!
And thanks to our October festivals, theaters & film societies: Philadelphia Film Society, New Hampshire Film Festival, Pickford Film Center, Tacoma Film Festival, Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, Brattle Theatre, Calgary International Film Festival and Milwaukee Film!
