Despite the Gods
Filmmaker Jennifer Lynch (daughter of David) is the uncensored subject of this off-the-rails documentary focusing on her ill-fated production of Hisss, a tale about snake Goddess Nagin. Known for making bold choices in her career, Lynch was unprepared for the unmapped territory of a Bollywood-Hollywood co-production, where chaos is the process and movie making doubles as a crash course in acceptance and self-realization. Surrounded by a team of un-trained but willing Indian crew, her twelve-year-old daughter, and a cast of Bollywood stars, Lynch does her best to stay sane and guide the production through a minefield of unforeseen disasters.
