Love Hotel is making its world premiere at the Hot Docs festival. The film looks at the inner workings of the Angelo Love Hotel in Osaka, where lovers meet to get it on and avoid the glaring eye of Japanese society’s increasingly conservative views on sex.
In the above interview, we speak with the directors of Love Hotel about the film and homophobia in Japan. The film premieres on April 26 but will have encore screenings throughout the week.
