IU CINEMA: Jodorowsky's Dune
In 1975, Chilean director Alejandro 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 Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel Dune was poised to change cinema forever.
“For me, Dune will be the coming of a god. I wanted to make something sacred, free, with new perspective. Open the mind!” -Alejandro Jodorowsky
For two years, Jodorowsky’s and his team of “spiritual warriors” worked night and day on the massive task of creating the fabulous world of DUNE: over 3,000 storyboards, numerous paintings, incredible costumes, and an outrageous, moving and powerful script.
“In that time, I say, if I need to cut my arms in order to make that picture, I will cut my arms. I was even ready to die doing that.” -Alejandro Jodorowsky
Through interviews with legends and luminaries including HR Giger (artist, Alien), Gary Kurtz (producer, Star Wars) and Nicolas Winding Refn (director, Drive and Only God Forgives), and an intimate and honest conversation with Jodorowsky filmed over the course of three years, director Pavich’s film - featuring never-before-seen realizations of Jodo’s mind-blowing psychedelic space opera (animated by Emmy Award nominated Syd Garon) - finally unearths the full saga of ‘The Greatest Movie Never Made’.
