Furthermore I swear as a director to refrain from personal taste. I am no longer an artist. I swear to refrain from creating a 'work', as I regard the instant as more important than the whole. My supreme goal is to force the truth out of my characters and settings. I swear to do so by all the means available and at the cost of any good taste and any aesthetic considerations. In a collective of Danish directors, including Lars von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg, established the manifesto above to govern the manner in which their films were to be shot.

Dogme 95 - The Vow of Chastity has already resulted in two interesting films. The Dogme film No. Before the title sequence the Dogme manifesto certificate is showed with the number of the film. Central to the plot is the 60 th birthday party of Helge, the father of four children.

The eldest son Christian reveals the dark secrets of his childhood to the assembled guests. With natural lighting, sound and hand-held video camera Festen creates disorientating images as disturbing as the content of the story. As the film is shot with a digital video camera and blown up to 35 mm, the material is very grainy on the big screen of a cinema theatre on Video this graininess is invisible.

The aesthetic of the movie resembles the aesthetic of the French New Wave, as hand-held camera equipment was used extensively. Vinterberg sees the vow of chastity as liberation from technical considerations and the limitations as inspiration. But also the collective aspect appeals to him. Festen was awarded with the Jury Prize in Cannes this year.

A group of young people, who live in a large house, pretend in the public to be idiots. They try to find their 'inner idiot'. By accident Karen gets involved in this group. In the end it turns out that one of them really had the disease the others were pretending and the group falls apart. Some serious questions about society's attitude to the disabled arise when watching the movie. The funny thing is the reactions to the idiots rather than the idiots themselves.

The film is very provocative because of its sensitive subject. The movie seems to break with the Dogme rules, as film music appears, but von Trier reveals in an interview that the source of the music - the harmonica player - was located behind the camera while shooting. So the sound is always recorded with the image, however tricky this is to achieve. Filmmakers have often used the limitations placed upon them as inspiration, but few have used formulated restraints on their own freedom.

However strictly the filmmakers really follow their own rules, the existence of Dogme 95 led to increased public interest in Danish cinema and provoked debate. The motivation behind the vow of chastity could be something between a gimmick and a serious attempt to produce a pure form of cinema but it had it's first impacts: the Danish government has offered increased financial support. Dogme The Vow of Chastity abridged : I swear to the following set of rules drawn up and confirmed by Dogme Shooting must be done on location.

Dogme 95 — Rules, Manifesto and Films of a Radical Experiment

When you think of a film movement, what comes to mind? Rarely will someone say "strict and rigid rules", but that is indeed the structure put in place by Danish directors Lars von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg when they formed Dogme Von Trier and Vinterberg started Dogme 95 in with this idea in mind: to return to "traditional values of story, acting, and theme, and excluding the use of elaborate special effects or technology. While Italian and French filmmakers embraced creative freedom, Dogme 95 wrote their manifesto and imposed a set of ten rules known as the "vow of chastity":.

In response, Danish filmmakers Lars von Trier, Kristian Levring, Soren Kragh-Jacobsen, and Thomas Vinterberg created Dogme 95, a radical film movement that intended to strip cinema of the technical effects that it was becoming reliant on. The purpose of Dogme 95 is to bring filmmaking back to its simplest roots; to avoid the trappings of mainstream filmmaking like excessive special effects and sensationalist plots. This is achieved by adhering to a strict set of rules referred to as the Vow of Chastity. This next video does a great job of showing how Dogme 95 films conform to rules set forth in the Vow of Chastity. The Vow of Chastity puts filmmakers at an extreme disadvantage. Without these essential elements, it becomes a massive creative challenge to the filmmakers — and that's the point. The first official Dogme 95 film produced was in , three years after the founding of the movement.
