Understanding Glasgow film series: Working Men

Working Men 

Say you’re making a bench. You’ve got a beautiful product at the end of it. That’s meaningful to me…you’re producing something. 

Set in Govan, a burgh situated on the south of the river Clyde with a long and proud history, this film tracks an extended conversation between Peter and Anton - two workers at the Galgael Trust. This film touches on the subjects of work, inter-generational relationships and place.

See that’s the difference, I’ve experienced both, being young and being old….He’s at the baby stage.
