If there's one positive thing that came out of the supposedly excruciating production on the movie HISSS, it's DESPITE THE GODS - the feature length documentary on Jennifer Lynch's tumultuous experience of filming the movie in India. If you're looking forward to seeing it, you may want to hang around Toronto in a couple of days, where the movie will screen as part of the Hot Docs 2012 festival. Check out the dates below and - if you missed the trailer and poster - peep those out below as well.
Here are the dates and the venues:
Saturday, April 28 at 6:45PM, Cumberland 3
Monday, April 30 at 1:30PM, Cumberland 2
Saturday, May 5 at 9:30 PM, Innis Town Hall
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.
Here's hoping for an imminent US release.
