Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #182. Christopher Dillon Quinn’s Eating Animals

Eating Animals

Director: Christopher Dillon Quinn
Producers: Natalie Portman, Christopher Dillon Quinn and Jonathan Safran Foer
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

He landed on the docu-scene with 2006’s Sundance Grand Jury Prize/Audience Award winning God Grew Tired of Us and if Christopher Dillon Quinn adds more “bite” to the book to docu film adaptation of Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals, then we’ll have a stronger discourse/kitchen table conversation about the wrongs of the farming industry and the rights of anti-Super Size Me plant-based diet. Sir Paul McCarthy is among the talking heads found in the docu.

Gist: Based on the New York Times best-selling book by Jonathan Safran Foer, this will explore the realities of contemporary animal agriculture alongside the complexities of food ethics and is an examination of our dietary choices and the food we put in our bodies.

Release Date: At this point, the Toronto Int. Film Festival and North American Film Fests such as NYFF and/or Telluride appear possible.
