Kicking off a new series for nytimes.com is Brett Weiner’s short film “Verbatim,” a hilarious dramatization of transcripts from an actual legal deposition in which an argument occurs over the definition of a photocopier.
“Verbatim” premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and won the audience award for best short film at the Dallas Film Festival.
The series will feature re-creations of actual events from law and government and The New York Times is seeking other examples of absurdity.
