Johan Grimonprez, Inflight Magazine

 

Inflight Magazine is a re-edition of the companion reader to Dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y (1997), a film on the history of airplane hijacking told through recycled images taken from news broadcasts, films, and commercials. The magazine parodises safety instruction manuals and presents history as a multi-perspective dimension open to manipulation through words and images.

 

Johan Grimonprez is a Belgian filmmaker. His work carves a space of critical distance from the perpetual distraction of staged abundance, media manipulation and info dystopia.
