Peter Christian Hall, author of American Fever: A Tale of Romance & Pestilence, is a Manhattan-based writer and filmmaker who grew up in upstate New York and has visited more than 50 countries. He holds degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and the School of International & Public Affairs at Columbia University, where he later was a Knight-Bagehot Fellow.
Hall's words have appeared in many newspapers and magazines, including Rolling Stone, The New York Times, the Village Voice, Reuters.com, and The Big Money. He served as executive editor at Financial World.
Hall wrote, produced, and directed Delinquent, a feature film (with an original soundtrack from Gang Of Four). It sold on five continents and played in American movie theaters for months. (Watch the trailer.)
When the movie opened in LA, the Los Angeles Times said:
“Delinquent is one of those great little near-no-budget movies that every now and then seem to come out of nowhere to give hope for a truly independent American cinema. It marks a stunning feature debut for writer-director Peter Hall, who never makes a false move as he builds suspense right from the start....
"Delinquent, which boasts an effectively nerve-jangling score by Gang of Four, its first for a film, is a highly accomplished work in which its cast is never less than compelling. This is one suspense picture that gives way to a larger contemplation of the interplay of fate and emotion."
