Christopher Quinn’s Eating Animals, a feature-length documentary based on the bestselling book by Jonathan Safran Foer, premiered with critical acclaim at the 2017 Telluride Film Festival. He produced the film with Natalie Portman and Evan Williams and Biz Stone, the co-founders of Twitter. Quinn's debut film, God Grew Tired of Us, emerged from Sundance in 2006 having garnered both the Grand Jury Prize and the coveted Audience Award. Produced by Quinn and Brad Pitt and narrated by Nicole Kidman, the documentary chronicles the extraordinary journey of three Sudanese Lost Boys—men who arrived in the United States after a 15-year migration through their war-torn country. Soon after his documentary’s release, Christopher completed 21 Up America, a longitudinal portrait executive produced by Michael Apted, of 14 young Americans at the ages of 7, 14, and 21. In 2007, Christopher received the Emerging Talent Award by the International Documentary Association.
Christopher also directs commercials; his clients include Microsoft, United Airlines, Sears, CVS, United Nations, and Bank of America. He notably directed the CDC’s poignant and effective “Tips from Former Smokers” Campaign, which has garnered awards and media attention for its effectiveness in inspiring people to quit smoking.
Christopher lives by the sea with his family in Connecticut.
