Each morning, a small group of obituary writers print the stories of three or four extraordinary lives in the cultural memory of society - these life stories are among today's news stories about war, politics and football results.
OBIT is the first documentary to deal with editorial obituary writing, via the legendary obituary department of The Times. The film goes under the surface with those who describe life after death on the newly printed cover of history, and addresses some of the most essential questions we ask ourselves about life, memory and the eternal course of time. What do we choose to remember? What never dies?
