Want to watch an established director have a complete nervous breakdown while attempting to craft a motion picture in a foreign land? You’re in luck! Penny Vozniak’s upcoming documentary “Despite the Gods” follows Jennifer Lynch as she tries to bring the misguided horror/comedy “Hisss” to fruition. Unfortunately for her, the process is a nightmare. Fortunately for us, her personal turmoil looks insanely entertaining. Thanks, Jennifer!
An official synopsis is what you need:
Despite the Gods is a feature documentary about Hollywood’s prodigal daughter. Jennifer Lynch is well known for making bold, if not ill-fated, choices in her filmmaking career. But nothing could prepare her for the unmapped territory of Bollywood-Hollywood movie making, where chaos is the process and filmmaking doubles as a crash course in acceptance and self-realization.
