Saturday Short

Today's short is a teaser for an in-production documentary, OBIT (Green Fuse Films), and The New York Times writer-reporters who prepare obits. The film received its world premiere this year at the Tribeca Film Festival.

I look forward to seeing the completed feature-length film by Vanessa Gould. Like many, whether or not they admit to it, I'm fascinated by obit-writing, by what gets in and what's kept out of a public announcement of a person's death. The writing is not so easy as one might think.
