Amnesty Cinema Night: Back to the Taj Mahal Hotel

Short url:

Join Amnesty International for this exclusive screening followed by a conversation with director Carina Molier. 

Dozens of people lost their lives in the 2008 terrorist attack on the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai, India. Years later, five witnesses return to the scene. Personal stories, security camera footage and an interview with one of the perpetrators recreate the horrific night when the hotel and its guests were held under fire for hours. The camerawork, editing and music conjure a sense of foreboding as the subjects recall the evening. This probing documentary explores how the traumatic event has changed each survivor’s view of life and raises existential questions about freedom, religion, vulnerability, and the illusion of security. Watch the trailer. 

Directed by Carina Molier, 2017, The Netherlands, 70 minutes. In English.

Bar opens @ 19:30.
Tickets can be purchased at the bar for €4.
Proceeds go to charity.
