Film Screening of ‘Manifesto’

Monday, July 17th @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

“Blanchett delivering these intimidating texts, and completely changing the internal context from which each text emerges, is so breathlessly inventive that it’s nothing less than totally entertaining.” -RogerEbert.com

Manifesto is our “Staff Pic” of the month at The Screening Room; it’s a high-risk, high-concept series of 13 vignettes, all starring Cate Blanchett reading/performing a different art manifesto in character. Simultaneously an satire of and indulgence in intellectual grandeousity, this one-of-a-kind film plays one night only on Monday July 17 at 7pm.

TICKETS: $10 general / $8 members / $8 seniors 65+

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.

“As an installation, “Manifesto” may have seemed like a sensory onslaught. As a movie, it’s a very elaborate intellectual exercise, immaculate in every technical detail.” -New York Times
