Manifesto is a Australian-German multi-screen film installation written, produced and directed by Julian Rosefeldt. It features Cate Blanchett in 13 different roles performing various manifestos.
The film was shot over 12 days in December in locations in and around Berlin. The film premiered and screened at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image from December 9,to March 14, A minute feature version premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January The film integrates various types of artist manifestos from different time periods with contemporary scenarios. Manifestos are depicted by 13 different characters, among them a school teacher, factory worker, choreographer, punknewsreader, scientist, puppeteer, widow, and homeless man.
The film consists of 13 segments, each minutes long. In each, a character recites parts of manifestos of various political or artistic movements. Bruno Taut Synpsis - Various - XmooosCast 2015 , Down with Seriousism!
Rosefeldt began developing the project through research and analyses of an assortment of textual manifestos, starting from Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels ' The Communist Manifesto and Filippo Tommaso Marinetti 's The Founding and Manifesto of Futurismthe latter his first selection, to film director Jim Jarmusch 's "Golden Rules of Filmmaking"the most modern text referenced.
Rosefeldt said that the main concept for the project was to have a woman embody the manifestos. Synpsis - Various - XmooosCast 2015 parallel, I began to sketch different scenes in which a woman talks, ending up with sixty short scenes, situations right across various educational levels and professional milieus. The only thing these draft scenes had in common was that they are being performed today, and that a woman is holding a monologue Sometimes we listen to the woman's inner voice; in other instances she addresses an audience; once she even interviews herself, etc.
I finally edited everything down to twelve scenes and twelve corresponding text collages. Rosefeldt and Blanchett had met a few years prior in Berlin, through Thomas Ostermeierwho had collaborated with Rosefeldt in theater.
Rosefeldt described the process of scripting as Synpsis - Various - XmooosCast 2015 organic"; "I started to play with the texts and to edit, combine and rearrange them into new texts that could be spoken and performed They are complementing The Blech - Ich Wollte Meine Schuhe Zerschneiden other in a playful way.
Production on the Der Hölle Rache / Die Zauberflöte - Natalie Choquette - La Diva began in Decemberlasting 12 days. The crew had to "plan the shoot meticulously" as sometimes they had to shoot two roles per day. Krauss used an additional Phantom Flex camera for two high-speed shots. Krauss said he chose Cooke S4 lenses for the shoot because Synpsis - Various - XmooosCast 2015 likes the "slightly Palsille Palaan - Lasse Hoikka & Souvarit - Pohjolan Yö skin tones they produce".
Cooke S4 lenses were combined with two Angenieux Optimo Zooms, which were used for "longer focal lengths and flexible second unit shots".
Krauss aimed for a natural look. The first images of the film were released in April Dan Rule of The Sydney Morning Herald said, "The work, and Blanchett's role in it, is a remarkable exploration of cultural and cinematic tropes and expectations, as well as the jarring, dislocating effect of context on content.
Manifesto is worth every minute", Rule wrote. But as you enter deeper into the room, the arrangement of the screens shifts and Manifesto increasingly leans into the sound-bleed and an unspoken stand-off between characters But always, Rosefelt gives us moments of quiet away from the manifestos".
Howard noted that Manifesto also becomes about Blanchett's adeptness as a performer, her performances "traversing class, country and gender". The installation "quite rightly sits as the hero of this exhibition: a mess of words, worlds, contradictions, and synchronicity. Giving yourself over to it, it can do nothing less than overwhelm.
