MANIFESTO (15) – 2015 Germany 95 min

Director: Julian Rosefeldt
Stars: Cate Blanchett, Erika Bauer, Ruby Bustamante

Picture from the film.Roaming the extraordinary streets and buildings of Berlin, in no less than thirteen guises, Cate Blanchett recites the manifestos of major modern artists and art movements. An unlikely premise? Perhaps! Yet, whether she’s declaiming Dada at a funeral eulogy, snarling Situationism as a punk rocker or shaping young minds as a Godard-quoting primary school teacher, Blanchett is utterly captivating. This unique film is hilarious, absurd, poignant and delivers a “hypnotic fascination” (The Guardian) in its celebration of ideas, architecture and transformative acting.
