"Love Hate Love" World Premiere
Tribeca Film Festival
Borough of Manhattan Community College Performing Arts Center (BMCC PAC)
26 April 2011

The MHMT participated in a new feature-length documentary by independent American film-makers, KTF Films. It weaves the stories of three casualties of terrorism and the positive responses that followed.

Along with Miriam's story are those of Peter C Alderman who was killed on 9/11 and Ben Tullipan who was injured in the 2002 Bali bombing.

The LHL website says: "Love Hate Love offers a refreshingly inspiring look at the way real people all over the world are choosing to respond to terrorism - proving that even the most horrifying acts of hate can be conquered by the most astounding acts of love."

The soundtrack features contributions from RadioheadU2 and Bruce Springstein.

Tribeca Film Festival featured "Love Hate Love" as one of five in a series called "Tribeca Talks: After the Movie" wth a panel discussion after the screening. The panel consisted of Dana Nachman and Don Hardy of KTF Films and Sean Penn, Executive Producer of the film, along with Steve and Liz Alderman, Ben Tullipan and Esther Hyman.

Esther says: "The Love Hate Love premiere was one of the best, most memorable nights of my life. The sell-out audience of 1,000 received it well and the Q&A session after the screening was lively and less nerve-wracking than I imagined! The aftershow party at Tenjune was a blur of compliments, congratulations and offers of assistance for the MHMT. It was an incredible privilege to be involved, and my heartfelt thanks go out to all who made it possible for me to attend."
