Manifesto – Movie Screening – Cate Blanchet
Event on 2017-08-02 19:00:00
Join Indievents and Club David, Wednesday, August 2, for the South Dakota Premiere of MANIFESTO. 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. MANIFESTO draws on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situationists and other artist groups, as well as the musings of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers.  Rosefeldt has edited and reassembled these artists’ manifestos into 13 brilliant collages—merging the ideas of Claes Oldenburg, Yvonne Rainer, Kazimir Malevich, André Breton, Sturtevant, Sol LeWitt, Jim Jarmusch, and many more. Blanchett performs these “new” manifestos while inhabiting 13 contemporary personas, among them a school teacher, a puppeteer, a factory worker and a homeless man. Blanchett’s performance pays homage to the moving tradition of artist manifestos while imbuing new dramatic life into these artists’ words. Here are some press quotes for the film: “As an installation, Manifesto may have seemed a sensory onslaught. As a movie, it’s a very elaborate intellectual exercise, immaculate in every technical detail.” – The NYTimes "MANIFESTO is an art film in the truest sense: It is conceptual in nature, nontraditional in form, and perfectly esoteric in appeal.” – Variety “The actress’s versatile instrument is capable of finding meaning in material that seems to have little potential. You’ll never be bored.” – Washington Post You can watch a trailer for the film here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9mTP9wr3u8 The screening will be at 7 PM and 9:30 pm at Club David. Tickets are in advance and at the door. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
