Feast Film Nights — Jodorowsky’s Dune (PG), Sat 12 September

Jodorwskys Dune, Strictly Kev , Ninja Tune

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.
