Christopher Greenslate is the co-author of the book On a Dollar a Day: One Couple's Unlikely Adventures in Eating in America (Hyperion Books) which has been featured in The New York Times, TIME Magazine, Newsweek and National Public Radio. He earned a degree in literature at San Francisco State University and his doctorate from Vanderbilt University, which included stints working in both India and East Africa. After spending years as a touring musician and recording artist, Christopher turned to filmmaking as he entered the American Film Institute Conservatory where he was the recipient of AFI’s China Story Fellowship which funded his education and sent him to China to develop a feature script. The resulting project, AGE OF THE PEACOCK, tells the story of a young woman who defies boundaries to play for the Chinese national hockey team in the run up to the Olympics, which was subsequently optioned and slated for production by Great Wall-Star Media. Here in the US, Christopher wrote and directed his first feature SAVIORS, about a young woman embedded with a white power group.
