From acclaimed visual artist Julian Rosefeldt, MANIFESTO features two-time Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett in 13 distinct, must-see vignettes that incorporate timeless manifestos from 20th century art movements. 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. Rosefeldt weaves together history's most impassioned artistic statements in this stunning and contemporary call to action.
"You may not know much about 20th-century art manifestos, but you'll know what you like with Cate Blanchett's stunning turn as 13 wildly diverse characters who explore them in Manifesto." - Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
"There is a hypnotic fascination to this work by artist and film-maker Julian Rosefeldt, one of the few commercial films that explores the boundaries between cinema and installation, or cinema and video art." - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Through humour, gorgeous visuals, and 13 different characters all played by Cate Blanchett, Manifesto interrogates the purpose and sincerity of manifestos... It is a rousing call for original thought." - Alex Heeney, Seventh Row
Showing in Rausch Auditorium. Tickets are $1 for students, $2 for non-students.
