MAGPIE (2014)

"There are people out there who think we're on the brink of collapse. Preppers. Doomers.

Survivalists.

People who see the signs everywhere. Gold at all time highs. Fiat currencies in decline. Revolution sweeping across the planet. Fracking and tar sands on the rise, the last desperate attempts to squeeze the last pips of energy out of the ground. People who think the financial crash was a quaint preview of what's really going to hit us.

The MAGPIE short is derived from one simple question. What if they were right? What choices would we make to survive? What sort of people would we become?"

A brand new short that delves into the world of Stephen Fingleton's upcoming HOLLYWOOD BLACKLIST featured and 2013 BRITLIST topping feature film, THE SURVIVALIST.

Funded by the BFI, Northern Ireland Screen and The Fyzz Facility, MAGPIE stars fantastic cast including, MARTIN MCCANN (THE PACIFIC, CLASH OF THE TITANS, SHADOW DANCER), MIA GOTH (NYMPHOMANIACS) and OLIVIA WILLIAMS (THE SIXTH SENSE).
