Christopher Webster [Celluloid 03.26.12] scifi horror thriller drama Exploitation art sexploitation



Lost in La Mancha and Hearts of Darkness are two Classic documentaries about filmmakers almost turned mad by the pitfalls and process of making their visions come alive on film. Add to that list Despite the Gods, a new documentary chronicling Jennifer Lynch's yet to be released, Hisss (trailer) her film about a snake woman in Indian.


Synopsis:
Upscale Font Jennifer Lynch, daughter of cult film auteur David Lynch, made her auspicious directorial debut in 1993 with Boxing Helena at the Sundance Film Festival. A box office disaster, the film was viciously mauled by critics and became the focus of multiple lawsuits. Fifteen years later, a recovering addict and hard-working single mother, Lynch returns to the director’s chair with an ambitious project that will test her skills and the entire crew's sanity.

Despite the Gods brings us behind the scenes on the set of Lynch’s Bollywood/Hollywood action film about a man-eating snake goddess. Out of her depth shooting on location with an Indian crew and two top Bollywood stars, Lynch turns her production into a vehicle for her own self-actualization, paying no regard to timeline, budget or reality. As the story in front of the camera derails, the story behind the camera explodes.



Despite the Gods was directed by Penny Vozniak and will see release April 28, 2012.

Check out the trailer.

Hiss did finally get released to the states; though only straight to Redbox. I watched it and it really wasn't that good. It really seemed like the original vision was something akin to a Jean Rollin film however was recut to be more of a straight horror show; which didn't work at all.

Though after watching the trailer; will be watching the film when it's out.
