Sedona AZ (May 1, 2019) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Sedona premiere of “Hotel Mumbai” May 10-15 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

“Hotel Mumbai” features an award-winning ensemble cast, including Academy Award-nominee Dev Patel, Armie Hammer, Jason Isaacs, Anupam Kher and Nazanin Boniadi.
A gripping true story of humanity and heroism, “Hotel Mumbai” vividly recounts the 2008 siege of the famed Taj Hotel by a group of terrorists in Mumbai, India.
Refusing to leave their guests, the renowned chef Hemant Oberoi (Anupam Kher) and a waiter (Academy Award-Nominee Dev Patel) choose to risk their lives to keep everyone safe. As the world watches on, a desperate couple (Armie Hammer) is forced to make unthinkable sacrifices to protect their newborn child.
