Back to the Taj Mahal Hotel

Director: Carina Molier
The terrorist attack on the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai in 2008 spurs a documentary investigation into the impact of fear. How is a person affected by such an infernal experience?
On 26 November 2008, a series of terrorist attacks takes place in Mumbai. The chic Taj Mahal Hotel is among the locations targeted. In this documentary, some surviving hotel guests return to India, to explain what it means to be subjected to such an attack. The film observes them for 24 hours in and around the hotel, where they take us back to the dark and frightening moments in 2008. In the process, we start to realise how this drastic event affected the life and thoughts of the victims and their surroundings.
