FILM: SYDNEY FILM FESTIVAL PRESENTS HOTEL SALVATION
11 Jun 2017 | 1.30pm - 3.10pmBook Tickets
Daya Kumar tells his family that he wishes to die in the holy city of Varanasi, on the banks of the Ganges. The stubborn old man drags along his reluctant adult son Rajiv and they check into the Hotel Salvation, where people come to die. But once there, Daya gets his lust for life back, making new friends with the other ‘dying’ residents. Daya and Rajiv are forced to reconnect – both to each other and to the world around them. Described as an "arthouse take on the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel", Hotel Salvation is a wonderfully accomplished film that captures the vibrancy and strangeness of Varanasi with gentle humour.
