After the Axe

Top of page

Every year, 250 000 managers get fired in North America. After the Axe is a cinematic drama that examines executive terminations and a new industry that specializes in handling them. The film was made with the cooperation of the business community, which provided authentic locations and even helped script actual scenes on set. The central figure, D.R. "Biff" Wilson, forty-four, is a composite figure based on extensive conversations with fired executives; the others play themselves. An interesting look at business ethics.

1981, 56 min 13 s
