Obit explores a familiar and underappreciated literary form: the obituary notices that appear in newspapers. This engaging film focuses on the legendary team at the New York Times, who approach their daily work with journalistic rigor and narrative flair. Follow the writers as they commemorate those who have made a lasting cultural impact—from pop star Michael Jackson to the inventor of the Slinky.
