Manifesto, Julian Rosefeldt, 2015, Germany/Australia, 95 min 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. “The project, originally conceived as a multi-screen video installation, was reconstituted as a documentary by German artist Julian Rosefeldt. From the Futurists to the Dadaists, Pop Art in a punch up with Marxism - it is a whirling confetti of ideas and images, weirdly thrilling, and often very funny. Make no mistake, an absurdist streak runs through Manifesto, a capering anarchic spirit that aims to upend the applecart and turn everything on its head.” Dorothy Woodend, DOXA Festival Preceded by: A Spark in the Dark, Chris Healey & James Healey, 2017, YT, 16 min This short doc follows the stories of four Tinder users who share their perspective on Dawson City's unique relationship with dating apps. Max’s Multiplex, Gregory McLaughlin & Andrew Seymour, 2017, YT, 8 min Won Best Film, Best Actor, and Best Original Music at 2017 Dead North Film Festival in Yellowknife, NWT.
