Tame Time. Stina Wirfelt. 08:10 mins. 2010
Tame Time looks at the area of Dalmarnock, which will be transformed over the next four years to house several of the sporting events and the athletes’ village during the Commonwealth Games in 2014. The fictional story is told from the perspective of a woman who regularly walks her dog in the area, an activity that makes her think about the past, the present and the future.
