    • Synopsis

    • Filmmaker Chris Amos seeks out to find out why the UK's leading human right activist Peter Tatchell was for decades a public hate figure and is still today targeted with hate campaigns and smears by the far right and far left.

      Over the past decade, Peter has gone from being one of the most despised public figures in Britain to one of the most loved. Despite this, there are still those who oppose him.

      Hating Peter Tatchell charts his 50 years of human rights activism and the immense personal price he has paid: violent assaults, hate mail and death threats.

      This film documents his triumphs and tribulations, which have impacted British politics and the politics of other countries including Russia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. It includes challenges to, and encounters with, Tony Blair, Robert Mugabe, Mike Tyson, the African National Congress leadership and successive Archbishops of Canterbury.

      This is the true story of overcoming adversity and of incredible personal achievement: how one man can bring marginal human rights issues into the mainstream to create change.
