Chilean surrealist filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky had previously been know for LSD inspired movies like El Topo and The Holy Mountain, before deciding on adapting the classic Frank Herbert novel Dune. What followed next was years of pre-production and elaborate prep work for a film that was never made. But now at least, we have another film made that details the film that never got made. Got it? Good. Directed by Frank Pavich, this doc has already won several awards and features tons of interviews from peeps like Star Wars producer Gary Kurtz and Drive/Only God Forgives director Nicolas Winding Refn. Jodorowsky’s Dune is currently touring film festivals all over.
