Director Frank Pavich has assembled a fantastic documentary about the sci-fi epic that never was - an adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune by cult filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky. While Jodorowsky's Dune plays in the TIFF Docs programme, the surreal film that could have been featuring collaborations from Salvador Dalí, Orson Welles and Mick Jagger could have easily fit within TIFF's Vanguard programme. For more information about Jodorowsky's Dune, visit the Festival website, Facebook page, official website or the IMDB Page.
And now for the gorgeous official poster for the documentary by Kilian Eng of DW Design:
