My second version.. I corrected something.
Must-Watch Documentaries: Jodorowsky’s Dune
Jodorowsky’s Dune is a documentary for those who appreciate science fiction movies. Dune is a masterpiece like Star Wars but maybe butter but not a famous (it’s was never made). This documentary has won 10 awards and received 23 nominations. The release dates in the UK was 9 October and in the EUA was 30 August, both in 2013. The documentary is with people who worked with Jodorowsky. And this documentary was directed by Frank Pavich.
Alejandro Jodorowsky is Chilean, 85 years old, who directed, wrote and starred in the Holy Mountain film in 1976. He wasn’t a famous actor at that time but the producer, Michel Seydoux, helped promote The Holy Mountain in Europe and asked for Jodorowsky to create or write a new movie. Michel rented a castle in France so that he would not be disturbed. Then he created a new team to create a script, storyboards and concept art. And he invited Pink Floyd band and they created some music for the movie.
He showed to all the major film studios that time and none of the companies accepted it, because it was a long film, with around 14 hours, and very expensive, approximately 15 million at that time. Also they didn’t believe that they had an audience for it.
For Jodorowsky, he wasn’t creating movie but a work of art which would open the minds of people. He wanted those who watched the movie to have the same experience as when they take LSD.
After some years Hollywood invited the people on Jodorowsky’s team to create new movies, for example H.R Giger who helped created Alien.
If it wasn’t Dune masterpiece like Star Wars, Alien, Indiana Jones, Contact, Blade Runner, Matrix and other never would have existed.
Jodorowsky said when he died someone could read all the script and make the film as an animation because now it’s possible to produce.
