‘It’s about a desert planet and the desert people who live in it’

  • August 1, 2021

The film, about a world that is dying, follows a group of people who arrive on a desert world where they are taken in by the people who are there.

They have no idea what they are doing and they start to believe in something they can’t explain.

They find themselves in a place where they will never return. 

The film is a meditation on the desert as a metaphor for human experience and culture, and its an exploration of the effects of climate change on people’s lives. 

Director Alex Grey told The Telegraph the film “really captures a moment in time” that we have to confront in order to change the world. 

“There’s this incredible sense of wonder and beauty that’s happening to the world,” he said.

“And it’s about this desert planet where there’s a bunch of people living on a planet that’s dying.

And the deserters are living in it.

And it’s a really beautiful moment.

And this desert people are living there and there’s no way they can return home.

And they can only survive on a place that’s gone, and there can be no returning.” 

The desert people, who will be referred to only as the ‘dune people’, are also a group that has been living on this planet for billions of years, Grey said. 

Grey said that although the film was about the people on the planet, it was also about the desert itself. 

 “The movie is really about this place called Dune,” he explained.

“The people who were on Dune were people who lived there.

So they have this great sense of awe, of wonder.

And also there’s this sense of this feeling of dread.” 

He said that the film also dealt with the effects that climate change has had on the people of the desert. 

While the film is about the “dune-people”, it was made in a “very pastoral” style.

Grey said that, unlike a film like ‘Planet of the Apes’ or ‘The Matrix’ that is “about the humans”, the people in this film “are about the planet.” 

 Grey told the Telegraph that he felt the director had “done the right thing” in using the desert in the film. 

 “I don’t think the world is dying anymore, and I think that there’s so much beauty and so much joy and so many things going on in the world and we need to take that beauty and joy and joy into the desert,” he told the newspaper.
