iwonderWho - Christopher Quinn (Eating Animals)
40 min • 2020
In this session of #iwonderWho, James Bridges, CEO of iwonder, speaks to Christopher Quinn, award-winning director of the documentary Eating Animals. Eating Animals is based on Jonathan Safran Foer’s New York Times bestselling book of the same name and narrated by Natalie Portman.
During the interview, Christopher talks about how the factory farming environment is particularly conducive for superbugs to jump from animal to human, causing a widespread pandemic like the current COVID-19 situation. Christopher also shares his experiences of filming in and exploring different places, from China to India to the American Midwest, and explains how eating animals isn’t about a black and white situation, but how considering the source of the meat and choosing plant-based meals occasionally can make a big difference.
