Ep 49 - "Healing From Hate" - Meet The Producer/Director And Film's Subject - Peter Hutchison & Tony McAleer

Peter Hutchison is a critically acclaimed filmmaker, NY Times Bestselling author, educator and activist. Based in Brooklyn, his experience in film and TV production – as a documentary director, producer, writer and NYU Faculty member - spans nearly two decades. He produced & directed Requiem for the American Dream: Noam Chomsky and the Principles of Concentration of Wealth and Power – an exploration of wealth inequity in American, grounded in an intimate, long- form interview with Noam Chomsky (Netflix). A NY Times Critics Pick and #1 top-selling doc on iTunes, the book version of the film debuted at #6 on the NY Times Bestseller list (Seven Stories Press). Peter is working on a triad of films exploring hate in America, including the feature Healing From Hate: Battle for the Soul of a Nation, which examines the root causes of hate group activity through the bold work of "Life After Hate" – an organization founded by former Skinheads and neo-Nazis now engaged in de- radicalizing violent extremists, and transforming attitudes of intolerance on the front lines. The companion pieces Angry White Men: American Masculinity in the Age of Trump, based upon the groundbreaking work of sociologist Michael Kimmel (Grasshopper Films); and Auschwitz: Journey into Reconciliation, which follows ex neo-Nazi and Holocaust denier Tony McAleer on a personal journey of atonement through the Polish death camps (currently in post), complete the trilogy. He is also currently producing/directing a film that examines the consequences of long-term, unfettered corporate activity in West Virginia.

Peter’s numerous documentaries include What Would Jesus Buy? (Sundance Channel) with producing partner Morgan Spurlock; the award-winning SPLIT: A Divided America (IFC Choice Indie) and follow-up SPLIT: A Deeper Divide (Documentary Channel); and Awake Zionthe Jerusalem IFF closing night event (Film Buff).  He holds an M.S. in Counseling Psychology.

Tony McAleer is an international speaker, change maker, and father of two. As co-founder of the nonprofit organization Life After Hate, he has made it his mission to help people leave hate groups. The Cure for Hate is his first book. He lives in Vancouver.
