The Song of the Broad Axe

A documentary about creating something from nothing. 

Axes in Oakland

On Tuesday we filmed an interview with Howard Hardy, an Oakland-based axe collector and amateur historian. He has a deep knowledge of all the axe companies that operated in Oakland and the types of axes they made. He also collects axe labels - he has books and books of the labels in his antique shop. The labels are amazing works of graphic design.
