Storyline

Manifesto draws on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situtationists, Dogma 95 and other artist groups, and the musings of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers, editing and reassembling them as a collage of artists' manifestos, ultimately questioning the role of the artist in society today. Performing these 'new manifestos' while inhabiting thirteen different personas - among them a school teacher, a puppeteer, a newsreader, a factory worker and a homeless man - Cate Blanchett imbues new dramatic life into these famous words in unexpected contexts.

Quotes

Various: [as a fifth-grade teacher] Now, nothing is original. OK? So you can steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration and fuels your imagination. OK? And you can devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, buildings, bridges, you know, trees, cloud formations, bodies of water, you know, even... even light and shadows. Now, I want you to select only those things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. All right? ...

Cate Blanchett and the intelligent art direction make the film with an unconventional premise work
1 July 2017 | by sabrewillSee all my reviews

Cate Blanchett once again displays her vast array of talent as she plays 12 different characters in 12 different settings decontextualising some of history's famous manifestos, bringing humour and new meaning to them, or perhaps no meaning, to stress a view of meaninglessness to them. There is no conventional narrative here but the film still has urgency to keep you watching through its compelling art direction and wit.
