Storyline

The Name of this Film is Dogme95 is an irreverent documentary exploring the origins of Dogme95, the most influential movement in world cinema for a generation. The film tells how a 'brotherhood' of four Danish directors armed with a radical Manifesto, has inspired, outraged and provoked filmmakers and filmgoers the world over. The rules of Dogme95 take filmmaking back to its brass-tacks - stories must be set in the here and now; the films must be shot on location, with a handheld camera, using natural light, and direct sound; the rules forbid murders and weapons (staples of the much-loved action-movie genre); and, most amusingly, the director must not be credited (that holds also for the director of The Name of this Film is Dogme95...). Dogme95 was formally baptised in 1998 at the Cannes Film Festival, when Martin Scorsese's jury awarded a top prize to Thomas Vinterberg's Dogme#1: Festen, a disturbing story of sexual abuse in an upper-class family. Then Lars von Trier himself raised ... Written by Anonymous

CLIFF NOTES ON THE DOGME95 MANIFESTO
18 April 2001 | by (Cambridge, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The Name of This Film Is Dogme95 is a great introduction to those who are not familiar with the work of this Danish collective and their "manifesto" for simple and more thought provoking movie-making. This documentary traces the history of the first few Dogme films and the emergence of newer Dogme films from around the world.

Interviews in the documentary include Lars von Trier, Harmony Korine, Thomas Vintenberg, and others who helped contributed to the first Dogme productions along with clips from all of the Dogme films so far, including The Idiots, The Celebration, Mifune, and julien-donkey boy.

So if you're in the mood for the makings of bold new cinema as some have called it or simply a label for an already built in audience as others see it. Watch this documentary and make up your own decision as to what Dogme95 really is.
