Friday 16th November 7.30 for 8pm at Westerham Hall: ‘Mukti Bhawan’ (Hotel Salvation) Poignant, uplifting, superbly shot, this beautifully simple comedy-drama is a reminder that great cinema sometimes needs nothing more than an inspired director; an honest, compelling story and a cast in tune with the project… Members’ guests £5 on the doorHotel Salvation is a real hospice in the holy city of Varanasi where the terminally ill come knowing that if they die there they will achieve salvation. Against this backdrop, a reluctant, but dutiful, son arrives with his father, happily but stubbornly adamant he is staying until he dies. Once ensconced, the father quickly gets a second wind driven by a blossoming friendship with another elderly guest. The son, though, is increasingly torn between filial duties and his family back home… Despite what the plot may suggest, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more life-affirming and heart-warming film.2016 / India / 102 min. / Colour Director: Shubhashish Bhutiani Adil Hussain, Lalit Behl, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Palomi Ghosh
