Rio Rainha | Queen River
Video Art, 2012
Written, directed and edited by Gabriela Bonomo
Queen River is Gabriela Bonomo’s final project for her Drama School degree.
In this video art, Gabriela plays Ophelia giving herself to death. Queen River (Rio Rainha) is an actual river in Rio de Janeiro that crosses most part of the city. It has been transformed through pollution and human interference in nature.
We decided to use only disposable materials that had been thrown away to create our version of Ophelia.
