Fuel filters don't typically clog so suddenly that the vehicle won't idle. It's generally a slow progression where you can't get maximum power and it gets worse so that you know you must do something.

Here, the engine dies in five seconds and doesn't want to restart.

So, presuming that you don't have bad fuel from a recent fill, my thoughts would tend toward the fuel pump.

Remove the line from the pump to the secondary filter and put it in a container. Crank the engine for 15 seconds and see how much fuel is delivered. I don't remember the exact spec for the pump, but, you must see at least two ounces of fuel........otherwise the pump has failed.
