Issue 6 is dedicated to Manifestos. At various moments in cinema history, filmmakers have stepped forth to denounce, to challenge, to argue for or against, to communicate new values, ideas and ideals. They have demanded changes to the prevailing aesthetic, industrial or political order. Some might dismiss such manifestos as little more than cries in the dark. But these public statements have often proved influential and/or prophetic, encompassing not only filmmaking and the moving image but also politics, history, society and more. This Issue reproduces and critically dissects 12 manifestos (self-described and otherwise) hailing from a range of contexts, regions and eras. Although each of these documents were meant first and foremost to speak to the times in which they were written, this Issue invites us to consider how compelling and just as relevant they remain in the present day.
