About the film:

From anchorwoman to homeless man, from Pop Art to Dogma 95, a chameleonic Blanchett gives a tour-de-force performance as she transforms herself like never before. Julian Rosefeldt weaves together history’s most impassioned artistic statements in this stunning and contemporary call to action.

MANIFESTO draws on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists,
Situationists and other artist groups, as well as the musings of individual artists,
architects, dancers and filmmakers. Rosefeldt has edited and reassembled these artists’
manifestos into 13 brilliant collages—merging the ideas of Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne
Rainer, Kazimir Malevich, André Breton, Sturtevant, Sol LeWitt, Jim Jarmusch, and
many more.

Blanchett performs these “new” manifestos while inhabiting 13 contemporary personas,
among them a school teacher, a puppeteer, a factory worker and a homeless man.
Blanchett’s performance pays homage to the moving tradition of artist manifestos while
imbuing new dramatic life into these artists’ words.

Runtime: 95 min.
