A First Friday Film, co-presented by the Farnsworth

This acclaimed documentary explores Chilean-French director Alejandro Jodorowsky's unsuccessful attempt to adapt and film Frank Herbert's 1965 science fiction classic novel “Dune.” In 1975, Jodorowsky, whose films EL TOPO and THE HOLY MOUNTAIN launched and ultimately defined the midnight movie phenomenon, began work on his most ambitious project yet. Starring his own 12 year old son Brontis alongside Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine and Salvador Dali, featuring music by Pink Floyd and art by some of the most provocative talents of the era, including HR Giger and Jean 'Moebius' Giraud, Jodorowsky's adaptation of “Dune” was poised to change cinema forever.

Deliriously amusing. A fantastic docu-fable. - IonCinema

A must-see. I drank it up as a man in the desert. - Ain't It Cool News

Aside from Jodorowsky's Dune being spectacularly entertaining and intriguing, as well as flat-out surprising, it also contains wonderful themes, worth carrying into any aspect of life. - Combustible Celluloid
