This weekend (as part of the Tulca Art Festival Galway, Ireland) artists Loitering Theatre filmed anti-war activist Margaretta D’Arcy in the moments shortly after her spaceship’s emergency crash landing on Silverstrand beach in the West of Ireland.

D’Arcy had been travelling into the future on a mission to ascertain the results of the forthcoming US election, when the time calibration failed on her ship.

In a scene eerily reminiscent of the final scene in 1968 sci-fi blockbuster Planet of the Apes, D’Arcy disembarked from her spaceship to find herself in a post-apocalyptic nightmare:

While D’Arcy looked on at the giant half-buried remains of the Statue of Liberty in the sand, other Irish citizens seemed oblivious as they continued to walk dogs and play with their children on the beach.
