Ten Minutes

Australia, 1973 (MIFF 1974)

Director: David Stocker

Travelling through a reality time-warp, the film starts on concrete water in these days of change. Significantly enough, the film opens with sand, the winds of time blow quietly as 3 people fight out a death struggle, stop the huge sand dune, then in the fullness of space, a sand clock spells out the fate of the chess player, Gene Wooton.
