JODOROWSKY’S DUNE

This fascinating documentary explores the genesis of one of cinema’s greatest epics that never was: cult filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci–fi classic Dune, whose cast would have included such icons as Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, and Mick Jagger. In 1975, following the runaway success of his arthouse freak–outs EL TOPO and HOLY MOUNTAIN, Jodorowsky secured the rights to Dune and began work on what was gearing up to be a cinematic game–changer, a sci–fi epic unlike anything the world had ever seen.
