About

Who am I?
I’m Margarita, lifelong cinephile with an MA in film and philosophy. I make video essays.

How do these videos work?
I try to release a video roughly every 1-2 months. I like to change up the topics, but I usually focus on a particular film or set of films as an entry point to deeper issues of philosophy and ideology. These videos are tons of fun for me to make, but they do take a lot of time and energy! When things are going smoothly (which they rarely do), a video can take 20-40 hours to write and 15-30 hours to edit.

Why is my channel called Is This Just Fantasy?

fantasy |ˈfan(t)əsē| n.
1) the faculty or activity of imagining things, especially things that are impossible or improbable

2) a fanciful mental image, typically one on which a person dwells at length or repeatedly and which reflects their conscious or unconscious wishes

3) an idea with no basis in reality

Film works largely on an unconscious level. As dreams reveal the ruling forces of the individual subconscious (fears, desires, and beliefs), narratives expose the ruling forces of the collective subconscious (ideology). In other words, that which we don’t know we believe, but which influences us regardless. These are the narratives I want to unpack.

In other words, fantasy is never just fantasy.
