A Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of a new 90-minute documentary, Hating Peter Tatchell, has been launched by Chrysaor Productions.
Narrated by film actor and human rights campaigner Sir Ian McKellen, Hating Peter Tatchell is the inspiring true story of world-renowned human rights activist Peter Tatchell, his 50 years of human rights activism and the resulting immense personal price he has paid.
Peter Tatchell, Director of the human rights organisation the Peter Tatchell Foundation, said: “This documentary is not just my story, it is also a snapshot of the struggle for human rights over the last half century. Your support in getting this film made is greatly appreciated.”
Filmmaker Chris Amos, Director of Hating Peter Tatchell, added: “Having known Peter for 15 years, I have come to appreciate Peter’s eccentricities, his meticulous organisational detail and bravery defending human rights and witnessed his passion working around the clock on campaigns. Despite his efforts, he has come under severe criticism. He is the person who for decades the media and critics loved to hate. Through this documentary you have the chance to meet the real man and hear the true story.”
The Kickstarter campaign aims to raise at least £10,000 of the £80,000 budget.
