Editorial Reviews

Revisiting the San Francisco of radicalism, idealism, and combative activism, CINE MANIFEST narrates the story of an early- 70s Marxist film collective whose members sought a place to live, learn, and change the world.

Director Judy Irola the collective s only female member catches up with her six compatriots more than three decades after the group s eventual dissolution, weaving together their shared history through a collage of intimate interviews. The amiable and somewhat mellowed members reassess their often impossible aesthetic and political ideals and their intense internal dynamic with distanced bemusement, affectionate nostalgia, and, most importantly, a genuine desire to rethink their own complex inter-relationships. Amidst extensive footage from the collective s many short films, wacky birthday movies, and two feature-length films (including Northern Lights, which took the 1979 Camera D Or at Cannes), this award-winning documentary also chronicles coming of age in a climate of both delusive self-righteousness and corrosive self-criticism.

Set to David Schickele s dreamy, retro soundscape, CINE MANIFEST captures a resilient group of artists reminiscing about a time when people weren t afraid to fight for their ideals, while also creating a stirring tribute to American independent filmmaking.

DVD Features: 4 Short Films from the Birthday Movies: Hamming , This is Your Life? , Vanishing Joint , and Streaking ; Filmmaker Biography

5.0 out of 5 stars Back in Time September 18, 2013
For me, this fascinating film was a trip down memory lane. The counter culture movement of the '60s and '70s was particularly intense in the artistic community. This group of young filmmakers combined their passion for film with their radical political views to form a communal artistic endevor. Since I've generally considered art to be more of an individual undertaking - at least in the vision, if not the execution - I found the idea to be something of an oxymoron, yet this group made several interesting films and even captured the top award at the Venice Film Festival. We all change as we age, and listening to the filmmakers look back at this social experiment really made me smile. Very enjoyable.
