The University of Miami Cinematic Arts Commission presents:
DIRECTED BY: Denis Villeneuve | USA, Canada | 2021 | 2H 35M | RATED PG-13
Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (“Arrival,” “Blade Runner 2049”) directs Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures’ “Dune,” the big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestselling book.
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.
Villeneuve directed “Dune” from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jon Spaihts and Eric Roth based on the novel of the same name written by Frank Herbert.
Starring: Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin.
Cinematic Arts Commission screenings are free and open to University of Miami students.
