Cate Blanchett plays 13 different roles in this homage to the great artistic manifestos of our time, directed by artist Julian Rosefeldt.
"Taking on roles as diverse as a homeless man, preppy newsreader, and puppeteer, Blanchett is a chameleon. She playfully embodies key artistic manifestos including those of the Futurists, Dadaists and Lars von Trier's Dogma 95. The ideas of a range of artists, including Yvonne Rainer and Jim Jarmusch, are also explored. Manifesto was commissioned as an installation by, amongst others, the Art Gallery of NSW and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image. The ideas find new life in this feature-length form. With its stunning visuals and Blanchett's luminous performances, it is far more than a catalogue of famous manifestos. In questioning the role of art and artists in society today, it is a call to action." (Sydney Film Festival)

Cate Blanchett Shines
This works much better as an art installation then as a film but Cate Blanchett's performance is worth seeing alone.
