Ep 228: “We are all living stories”- Shubhashish Bhutiani Talks Hotel Salvation (Mukti Bhavan)

We spoke to Shubhashish Bhutiani, director of Hotel Salvation (Mukti Bhavan), at the London Indian Film Festival just before his UK festival premier. The movie is releasing this week through the BFI in the UK so it was the perfect time to post this interview.

We talk about:

  • Opening night at LIFF
  • How to get a movie made
  • Traveling the world and the difference in audiences
  • Dealing with envy and privilege

“Hotel Salvation has already won ten Indian and international film awards including Best Film at the 2017 New York Indian Film Festival, and the Prix Enrico Fulchignoni at last year’s Venice Film Festival (an award given by the International Council of Film and Television at UNESCO to the Venice film that best represents the values of peace and human rights.) It is now a strong contender to be India’s Academy Award entry in 2018.

There will be a full review Upodcast of Hotel Salvation later this week, Shah Shahid from The Split Screen Podcast will be joining us!
