Notebook Magazine Issue 2 (MUBI)
Issue 2 of the Notebook magazine tours around the world with a new collection of features, many devoted to the theme of travel: from Buenos Aires to Cairo, from Germany to Greece (and even to outer space!), we take you on a whirlwind multimedia trip of the moving image. Land in 1970s Los Angeles through Michelangelo Antonioni’s previously unpublished travel diaries; visit Fårö island with cartoonist and animator Dash Shaw; stop by essential art exhibitions across cities in Europe; and marvel at New York’s Grand Central Terminal, the setting for iconic film scenes which are mapped in a bustling choreographic cartography. Completing the Issue are, among others, photographs by director Park Chan-wook (The Handmaiden, Decision to Leave), a personal chronicle of independent self-distribution by filmmaker/photographer Danny Lyon, and a unique exploration of the “phantom ride” genre both in its early cinema and the latest digital incarnations.
