Early Life and Career Beginnings

Christopher Edward Nolan was born on July 30, 1970, in Westminster, London. He was raised in the northern London suburb of Highgate by his father, a British advertising executive, and his mother, an American flight attendant and English teacher.

He also spent a significant amount of time during his childhood in Evanston, Illinois. Through his parents, he has dual American and British citizenship. He has two brothers. As a child, Nolan loved to experiment with his dad’s Super 8 camera.

His film-making passion grew throughout his teen years. As a student at University College London, where he studied English literature, he began shooting short movies. According to him, he deliberately chose to study something other than film to gain a different perspective.

After he graduated from university in 1993, Nolan performed work and odd jobs like script reader, camera operator, and corporate video director. He funded his own short film, “Larceny”, and it was screened at the Cambridge Film Festival in 1996. He continued to create his own films and shop his projects around, with virtually no success finding any funding.
