Schnabel, Strike, Helvetica
Friday, December 07, 2007
Studio 360 takes to the streets. We get swept up in strike fervor at a WGA rally. Novelist Will Self exits LaGuardia Airport and tries to walk to Manhattan. Kurt Andersen and filmmaker Gary Hustwit go hunting for a 50-year-old typeface. And Julian Schnabel on his new movie, the Diving Bell and the Butterfly. It’s based on the memoir of a man who survived a stroke, but suffered in a condition called “locked-in syndrome”, only able to communicate by blinking his left eye.
