Margaret Gallagher is real

Josh Spindler

United Kingdom


In a speculative timeline where the climate crisis was forced to tipping point, causing a planetary reaction which changed the way we see the world, Margaret Gallagher still lives 'off-grid' like she has done her entire life. She talks of the Internet and the ever-worsening weather as we see a glimpse of the blueprint to a way of life that may save us from the end of the world.


I am honored to have won the Super Short Film Award with a piece of work that will allow more people across the world to witness, for 40 seconds, the beauty and honesty of one of the most wonderful people I've ever been lucky enough to capture in one of my films. Thank you, Margaret.
