Jodorowsky's Dune Uncovered

Jodorowsky's Dune.

Scene 90-91 : Czigo and Kinet

Paul & Jessica are bound and gagged in the back of a vehicle moving towards the desert.

In the front are Czigo and Kinet who are drunk on the Spice brandy. They look back and see Jessica's legs uncovered, laugh and stop the vehicle.

As they start to cut the ropes binding Jessica's legs Paul is able to remove his gag and tries to use the Voice on them, it takes a few attempts but they eventually remove Jessica's gag who quickly asks, in the Voice, "Why are they fighting over me?"

After a brief fight Czigo kills Kinet, and then starts to strangle Paul, but Jessica tells Czigo to let Paul go. Czigo releases Paul and pushes him out of the vehicle, but Paul delivers a powerful kick, killing Czigo instantly.

As Paul and Jessica retrieve the packet Yueh had given to the Spice searchers an approaching worm can be heard.

Several storyboards for this scene are available, with some coming from Gus Storms's poster for the Jodorowsky's Dune documentary (, and although they are redrawn they are faithful to the Moebius boards for this scene. The boards show Czigo strangling Paul, Jessica shouting "Stop!", Paul's ropes being cut, then the actual Moebius boards show the fatal kick to Czigo.
