David Lynch, USA, 1984
137 mins, DCP. PG violence

On the desert planet Arrakis, all interstellar trade depends on a spice that's found nowhere else. When Paul Atreides and his family are sent there to govern, the stage is set for a tale of betrayal, murder and prophecy... David Lynch's Dune has become a sci-fi cult classic. “Mammoth, unwieldy and completely ahead of its time” – Film4

In this special screening, Dr Kara Kennedy (aka Dune Scholar) will provide a brief history of Dune's production, interesting tidbits about how it was originally marketed, and key features to look out for while watching this cult classic. Copies of her latest book, Adaptations of Dune: Frank Herbert’s Story on Screen, will be available for purchase for those wanting to know more.

“It’s easy to criticize David Lynch’s 1984 film Dune for its strange creative decisions or its commercial failure. But the more you learn about the film’s troubled production and the crew’s desire to steer clear of Star Wars-style science fiction, the more you can appreciate the bravery it took to make the first adaptation of Frank Herbert’s bestselling 1965 novel.”

This screening is open to the public – all tickets $10 (Auckland Film Society members free). Tickets and AFS memberships on sale now at Academy Cinemas, and from the AFS desk in the cinema foyer from one hour before the screening.
