Feast Film Nights present a rare UK screening of Frank Pavich’s award-winning documentary.
Jodorowsky’s Dune is the tale of one-of-a-kind director Alejandro Jodorowsky’s ambitious but doomed attempt to adapt Frank Herbert’s sprawling, sci-fi novel, Dune, for the big screen.
Almost a decade before David Lynch’s love it or hate it adaptation hit the cinemas, Jodorowsky led a band of “spiritual warriors”, including HR Giger (Alien) and Jean ‘Moebius’ Giraud, on a mission to create his magnum opus; a prodigious 14-hour feature starring Mick Jagger, Orson Welles, Pink Floyd, and Salvador Dali.
Having mythic status among sci-fi fans and film makers alike, Jodorowsky’s unfinished masterpiece influenced the making of some of the genre’s greatest movies including Alien, Star Wars, and The Terminator.
The night will feature a post-screening DJ set from Strictly Kev (aka DJ Food, Solid Steel/Ninja Tune).
Together with Jonathan More and Matt Black from Coldcut, and Patrick Carpenter (who would later grace the turntables for The Cinematic Orchestra), Strictly Kev released a slew of sample-heavy, breakbeat-laden nuggets under the guise of DJ Food. Throughout the 1990s DJ Food’s Jazz Brakes series laced the turntables of any self-respecting hip-hop DJ in the UK.
Two decades on Strictly Kev is running the kitchen alone, DJing to sold out crowds and entertaining clubbers globally with eclectic and artistically crafted DJ sets of hip hop, funk, jazz and vinyl obscurities.
Sci-fi fanatic, vinyl connoisseur, and a true fan of the genius of Alejandro Jodorowsky, there is no one better than Strictly Kev to provide the soundtrack to your post-movie musings.
Strictly Kev’s DJ set will be accompanied by cosmic geometric explorations and animations by Ambigraph.
