Documentary Frontiers - Jodorowsky's Dune

Thursday, March 26 at 7pm - FREE!

In 1975, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s films had greatly defined the midnight movie phenomenon. Setting his sights on the great sci-fi novel Dune for his next film, Jodorowsky sought to change the genre forever. After being stalled and ultimately cancelled, Jodorowsky had created, in effect, the greatest sci-fi movie never made. This is a unique chance to see a piece of his vision, up on the big screen, 40 years later. Cannes Film Festival favorite, 2013
