screen-shot-2011-09-27-at-11.31.46-am

Written by Jim Henson and his frequent collaborator Jerry Juhl, Tale Of Sand was a completed 1974 screenplay discovered in the late master's archives. The dark and decidedly surreal story follows an unnamed man who finds himself in a tiny town that, even though it's in the middle of a seemingly endless desert, contains all manners of cultural anachronisms like swinging jazz clubs, monkeys playing cymbals, and hula girls. For mysterious reasons, the man is brough
