Film: Dune

The Great Beyond Film Series:
MATRIX 175 artist Dulce Chacón chose three films to complement her exhibition Fallen Angels, which explores the frontiers of air and space, the wondrous realm of pilots, astronauts, daredevils, scientists, and engineers.

In the year 10191, a spice called melange is the most valuable substance known in the universe, and its only source is the desert planet Arrakis. A royal decree awards Arrakis to Duke Leto Atreides and ousts his bitter enemies, the Harkonnens. However, when the Harkonnens violently seize back their fiefdom, it is up to Paul (Kyle MacLachlan), Leto’s son, to lead the Fremen, the natives of Arrakis, in a battle for control of the planet and its spice. Based on Frank Herbert’s epic novel.

1984. 137 min. Directed by David Lynch.

Note: The film originally scheduled for this date—The Man Who Fell to Earth—is no longer available for screening.
