How does a reporter appraise a life?

The Newseum and The New York Times present a screening of the acclaimed 2017 film “Obit,” the first documentary to look into the world of editorial obituaries via the legendary obit desk at The Times.

The film will be followed by a conversation featuring Margalit Fox, who has had countless page one send-offs of leading cultural figures, and Jeff Roth, who presides over the Times archive’s of old photographs and yellowed clippings, the stock-in-trade of obituary writers’ work.
