Synopsis

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

Director’s Statement

Adapt or die. It was my mantra while doing Dune. The desert has its ways of bringing you back to your true self and ridding you of rotten habits. You have to evolve to survive the experience. Making this film answered an old call, with deeper roots than I imagined. It had to do with fate, faith and instinct, colonial alienation and free will. I spoke of Frank Herbert as my new prophet and his novel as my bible. Nature was my God. Silence, my Holy Spirit. The winds of reality shifting the sands, sculpting new landscapes, erasing my landmarks, I prayed to avoid losing my way. Thanks to Frank, I came back alive. Back from the erg, allow me to play the game of prophecy. Dune was dreamed and made for the theatrical experience.
The big screen is not just another format, it is at the core of the cinematographic language. The original form. The one that will stand the test of time.
