Who is Christopher Nolan?

Christopher Jonathan James Nolan is a British–American film director, screenwriter and producer. Nolan created several of the most successful films of the early 21st century, and his eight pictures have grossed more than $3.5 billion worldwide.

Having made his directorial debut with Following, Nolan gained considerable attention for his second feature, Memento. The acclaim of these independent films afforded Nolan the opportunity to make the big-budget thriller Insomnia, and the more offbeat production The Prestige; both were well-received critically and commercially. He found further popular and critical success with The Dark Knight trilogy and Inception. He is currently working on the science-fiction film Interstellar, which is set to be released in November 2014. Nolan runs the London-based production company Syncopy Inc. with his wife Emma Thomas.

Nolan's films are rooted in philosophical and sociological concepts and ideas, exploring human morality, the construction of time, and the malleable nature of memory and personal identity.
