This documentary explores the failed attempt by film auteur Alejandro Jodorowsky to adapt Frank Herbert's Dune in the early 1970s. The film excels at exploring how Jodorowsky gathered some incredible talent--like Jean "Moebius" Giraud, H.R. Giger, Pink Floyd, and Salvador Dali among others--and how the film ultimately failed to find backing in Hollywood. However, despite never being made, we see how Jodorowsky's Dune ultimately influenced science fiction classics, like Alien, for decades to come.
Explores Alejandro Jodorowsky's unsuccessful attempt to adapt and film the science fiction novel "Dune" in the mid 1970s.
