The Lifespan of a Fact
By Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell
Based on the book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal
Directed by Renee Prince
Jim Fingal is fresh-out-of-Harvard fact checker for a prominent sinking New York Magazine. John D’Agata is a talented writer with a transcendent essay about the suicide of a teenage boy – an essay that could save the magazine from collapse. When Jim is assigned to fact check D’Agata’s essay, the two come head-to-head in a comedic yet gripping battle over facts versus truth.
