Story
Enchanted Dune is a complex dance film that evokes the fabled “Sirens of the Desert” tale circulated among travelers at the height of the Silk Road. It’s a blend of expressive Central Asian dance, explicit fashion and subtle acting in a bold style embracing surrealism, mystery and imagination.
