Before being foisted upon David Lynch with disastrous results (he wanted his name stricken from the heavily edited and under-funded final project), the film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi epic “Dune” was poised to become one of the most ambitious projects in film history. The Holy Mountain (1973) director Alejandro Jodorowsky had recruited a team including Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine, H.R. Giger, Pink Floyd and Salvador Dali to work tirelessly for two years before funding dried up, leaving fans to wonder what would have been. Director Frank Pavich interviews Jodorowsky and looks behind the scenes at the pre-production work that had been completed to tell the tale of the extremely ambitious attempt to turn “Dune” into a ten hour long hallucination that never was.
