Fired! | Chicago Reader


When Woody Allen fired Annabelle Gurwitch from his off-Broadway play, she began collecting stories of other people who'd been fired, then wrote a book, produced a show, and made this 2006 video. She talks to autoworkers and a former White House chef, as well as to professionals who help fire workers and outplacement specialists, taking an amusing, lighthearted approach that can become too self-consciously cute. The video is heavy on actors and other showbiz types, and the self-centered Gurwitch doesn't distinguish between a factory worker laid off after decades on the job and an actor getting rejected during tryouts. 71 min.
