Frank Pavich’s documentary explores cult film director Alejandro Jodorowsky’s attempt to create a big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert's seminal science fiction novel Dune. While the ambitious production collapsed after two years, Jodorowsky's team of then-relatively-unknown concept artists continued exploring the themes and styles started on the project and changed modern science fiction forever.

90 minutes; PG-13
