Love Hotel has world premiere at Hot Docs

Documentary offers insight into Japanese sex culture and views of homosexuality

Love Hotel premieres tonight at the Hot Docs International Documentary Film Festival. Check out our interview with the directors, and stay tuned for a full-length interview clip.

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.
