Notebook Magazine Issue 3 (MUBI)
THE FLAP OF A BUTTERFLY’S WINGS
Brace for the approach of Issue 3 of Notebook magazine, in which saboteurs are afoot and unpredictable weather is in the forecast! With thematic pieces devoted to the appearance of weather inside and outside of movies—w(h)e(a)ther cataclysmic or beautiful, documented or created—and to the disruptive ways film culture and industry can be sabotaged, this Issue is expected to reach record readings (!). Features encompass an exploration of filming in extreme cold in the silent era and today; a tour of an artificial weather effects facility; filmmaker weather diaries; Batgirl and the self-sabotage of Warner Bros. Discovery; a radical manifesto from the unseen film festival workers; a critic’s self-debate over Godard’s Contempt; and advice on how to render a movie unstreamable. Other highlights include 16mm film restoration, behind the scenes of 1930s Indian moviemaking and a new, multi-issue series on the “Things a Filmmaker Should Know” inaugurated by Tsai Ming-liang (Days, Goodbye, Dragon Inn).
