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.

“Pure genius.–  Rolling Stone

“Compulsively watchable.” – Variety

“13 Blanchetts for the price of one.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“A bold, awe-inspiring work…Rosefeldt’s film is itself a manifesto, at a moment when we desperately need one.” – Flavorwire
