Event

Despite the Gods
In 2008, Hollywood's prodigal daughter, Jennifer Lynch, traveled to India to direct Hisss: a creature-feature film about the vengeful snake Goddess Nagin. But things go wrong very quickly. Perhaps there is a good reason why Hollywood and Bollywood have never blended like this before.

With uncensored candour, Lynch can only cheerlead and watch with part hope, part despair as her beloved Hisss strays further and further away from her original vision.  Surrounded by a team of truly wonderful Indian crew, her twelve-year-old daughter, and a cast of Bollywood stars, she does her best to stay sane and guide the production through a minefield of disasters.

Followed by a conversation with director Jennifer Lynch (Boxing Helena, Surveillance, Chained), daughter of David Lynch.

Screens with Handle With Care directed by Jun Iwakawa (UK/2013/4:30mins);
