Life After Dell

2010, 52 minutes

On Thursday 8th January 2009, the dreaded statement finally came.

Dell workers in Limerick, Ireland arrived in their droves to the news that 1,900 of the 3,000 workforce would be laid off at the plant over the following 12 months. Manufacturing was moving to Poland as part of a massive cost cutting strategy. The first 450 layoffs would happen in May and the rest throughout 2009.

This documentary spends tweleve months with four very different families whose lives would be affected by the shocking news that day. We spend time in Limerick city and county and travel to Poland as we get to know these people as they brace themselves for an uncertain future, witnessing the highs and lows as they come to terms with their new circumstances.


A hard-hitting, moving and ultimately inspiring documentary.
