Jodorowsky's Dune and Danza de la Realidad

Posted in Favorites on

Two amazing films at the Imagine Film Festival: Jodorowsky's Dune (2013), a documentary by Frank Pavich about Jodorowsky's film Dune that was supposed to 'give LSD hallucinations without LSD,' which he started to develop in the early 1970s as a spiritual journey into the gallaxy.  Jodorowsky collaborated with Moebius, Giger, Dan O'Bannon, Mick Jagger, Orson Welles, Glorai Swanson, Salvador Dali, Amanda Lear, Giger, Pink Floyd, Magma and many other 'big warriors' that committed to the project. See an interview and trailer of this film that was never made but that has left its fingerprints everywhere in Hollywood. Most admirable is Jodorowsky's own spirit. This film is the best introduction to continue the fantastic journey with Jodorowski's last film based on his autobiography, La Danze della Realidad. Images and thoughts worthwhile to contemplate and that will stay with you for a long time.
