Orginal title: Manifiesto)
Director: Alejandro Rath
Producer: Proton Cine
Country: Argentina

Alejandro Rath’s Manifest is an ironic and witty re-enactment of the historic meeting between French writer, poet, and the father of surrealism, André Breton and Russian revolutionary, Bolshevik leader, and Marxist theorist Leon Trotsky. During their intensive collaboration, a new manifesto is born. The text Towards a Free Revolutionary Art (1938) was written fourteen years after Breton’s legendary Manifesto of Surrealism and two years before Trotsky was assassinated by a Spanish communist while in exile in Mexico. The time is shortly before World War II when Stalin was ruling Russia and Hitler in Germany.
