Inspired by the groups reunion, more than thirty years following its dissolution, Irola decided to create this documentary tracing the formation, development, and eventual splintering of Cine Manifest. Featuring frank, often hilarious interviews with all the groups members, who reminisce about their days working together, Cine Manifest is a fascinating account of the hopes, ideals, and sometimes messy realities of life in a leftist 1970s film collective. Without condescending to the period, Irola and her interviewees share their memories of and attitudes towards their experiences, from the vantage point of thirty years on.
