This is a realistic and terrible story of five participants in the war in Ukraine. The coffins of 30 pieces of silver, like the bribe for the death of a brother. Prosthesis, thrown on the judge's desk, instead of documents. Separatists in power and rampant corruption in the field. Rape in captivity. Prison on false accusations and declared hunger strike to death. Their manifesto, written in blood, carries the last of the remaining people on a wheelchair in Kiev to read it from the Maidan rostrum ... and put the president on the table.
Directed by Antonis Lepeniotis

Displaying a broad range of Golden Age Hollywood animation, Manifestoon is an homage to the latent subversiveness of cartoons. Though U.S. cartoons are usually thought of as conveyors of capitalist ideologies of consumerism and individualism, Drew observes: "Somehow as an avid childhood fan of cartoons, these ideas were secondary to a more important lesson—that of the 'trickster' nature of many characters as they mocked, outwitted and defeated their more powerful adversaries. In the classic cartoon, brute strength and heavy artillery are no match for wit and humor, and justice always prevails. For me, it was natural to link my own childhood concept of subversion with an established, more articulate version [Marx and Engels' Communist Manifesto]. Mickey running over the globe has new meaning in today’s mediascape, in which Disney controls one of the largest concentrations of media ownership in the world."
