WHY YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS MOVIE?

TUSK is not only the most bizarre film of the year but also the wackiest movie from Kevin Smith (CLERKS, DOGMA, JERSEY GIRL) ever! This insane cinematic journey is the first part of Smith’s TRUE NORTH trilogy, and the simplest way to describe TUSK is as a bizarre eccentric blend of horror, fantasy and grotesque comedy. Bonus: try to figure out in which role in the film Johnny Depp appears!

5. Fantastic Zagreb is over! Special thanks to all sponzors and visitors of the festival! See you next year!

Sinopsis:
In 1974, Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky, whose films EL TOPO and THE HOLY MOUNTAIN launched and ultimately defined the midnight movie phenomenon, began work on his most ambitious project yet. Starring his own 12 year old son Brontis alongside Orson Welles, Mick Jagger, David Carradine and Salvador Dali, featuring music by Pink Floyd and art by some of the most provocative talents of the era, including H.R. Giger and Jean ‘Moebius’ Giraud, Jodorowsky’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel DUNE was poised to change cinema forever.

WHY YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS FILM?

Brilliant award winning documentary directed by an American filmmaker of Croatian origin Frank

Pavic about the best movie never filmed! The iconic Chilean director Alejandro Jodorowsky tried in

the late 1970s to convert Frank Herbert’s DUNE into the most spectacular science fiction of all time,

but even the mighty Hollywood didn’t have enough money for his vision. Jodorowsky wanted on film

stars like Pink Floyd, Salvador Dali, HR Giger, Mick Jagger, Orson Welles and the other giants of the

industry, but he still manages to define the future of the genre regardless of the collapse of his

project.
