Back in 2015, Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett teamed up with German artist and filmmaker Julian Rosefeldt for Manifesto. A multi-screen installation, Manifesto saw Blanchett performing various artist manifestos as a variety of different characters from all walks of life, including the likes of a school teacher, factory worker, punk, scientist, puppeteer and homeless man. Now, after stands at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Berlin’s Museum für Gegenwart, and the Park Avenue Armory in New York City, the project is getting a wider release in feature film form. Set to hit the big screen later this month, Manifesto will offer up a ninety-minute cut of Blanchett’s performance as Rosefeldt and the actress explore Dada, Futurism and more.
Manifesto will premiere at Sundance on January 23 before presumably getting a proper release sometime later this year.
