Dune 1965

Presented by CultureHub 


Frank Herbert’s Dune series is considered as one of the best works of science fiction literature ever. Dune anticipates some of the key philosophical and geopolitical debates of the early 21st century, including controlled genetic breeding, depleted energy resources, cultures and civilizations cross pollinating, religious wars, and the survival of mankind.

Based on Herbert’s book, Komuna// Warszawa builds a philosophical theatrical essay about the future. In narrative terms, Dune 1965 is a docufiction describing Herbert’s visit to the Iranian desert city of Yazd. It was there that, under the influence of drugs, the writer supposedly came up with the core of the story. Discovering the “traces” of that visit years later, Komuna// Warszawa offers a contemporary retelling of Dune. Complete with film sequences shot in Iran and scenography designed by the Iranian artist Negar Farrajani.
