Abstract

A former member of the leftist filmmaking collective Cine Manifest, a pioneer in using video and digital formats to make features, and the first American director to win awards at both Cannes and Sundance, Rob Nilsson combines in his “Direct Action Manifesto” aspects of politically committed collective filmmaking from the 1960s and 1970s with the improvisational techniques of John Cassavetes. A pioneer in American indie film, Nilsson has made some twenty-four features, many using improv techniques and video to keep costs down. He also runs Citizen Cinema, a collaborative acting workshop collective dedicated to making features and based on the principles of the “Direct Action Cinema” manifesto.
