DC Indie Film Festival: Funny Doc of Film Gone Bad in India - Reception after

Okay, this looks REALLY fun!  In 2008, Hollywood's prodigal daughter, Jennifer Lynch (father is director David 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.

So their Australian video woman had enough footage and smarts to make a documentary of it all, titled Against the Gods - with some great India scenery thrown in.  Jennifer Lynch will be there to talk after, plus there's a wine and cheese - which is great for socializing.  That's why the $20 cost.  (Maybe we can also get a quick dinner after that.)

TICKETS ARE REQUIRED.  Here's the link to buy them.  I think it will sell out once the word gets out, but, of course, I don't know for sure. Again here's the link.   It's also a good festival to support.

Here's more of a description:  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).

    Good movie (volume a bit loud). Great experience! I had to leave before the showing of Red (directed by Channing Godfrey-Peoples), so I gave a donation to get a copy...will let you know how good it is after I get a moment to watch it. Really enjoyed this MeetUp.
