Sudbury Indie Cinema presents the Sudbury premiere of film Manifesto at a Feb. 1 screening.

From an anchorwoman to a homeless man, actress Cate Blanchett portrays 13 distinct characters in vignettes that incorporate timeless manifestos.

Manifesto was originally a 2015 Australian-German multi-screen film installation written, produced and directed by artist/filmmaker Julian Rosefeldt.

The film was shot over 12 days in December 2014 in locations in and around Berlin. This 90-minute feature version premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2017. It has never played in Sudbury.

The screening takes place starting at 7:30 p.m. at the McEwen School of Architecture. Tickets can be purchased for $15 in advance online on Event Brite. Rush tickets are available at the door for $20 half an hour before the film starts.
