OFF WITH HER HEAD
a new VR Film by Camelia R. Finley
This film explores the libel pamphlets distributed throughout Paris, leading to Marie Antoinette's death by guillotine.
Taking each propaganda illustration and acting it out reveals the terrific lies the writers experimented with in the creation of her fall, from the ludicrous idea of bestiality and incest in the royal family, to the size of her wig and embezzling millions back to Austria. Here we may prove that propaganda can kill you.
Within this stratagem is a person who believes themselves to be Marie Antoinette. Is he a god who has come to Earth to live a human life, placed in the body of Marie, or has he given himself permission to go down the rabbit hole of wonder and horror in the world of the pamphlets? He is able to dive inside with awesome candor, comedy, and relive each gruesome word. He will fall into the uncensored battle for survival in 360.
