Birthday: Oct 4, 1967
Birthplace: San Francisco, California, USA
Was born to a working-class Jewish mother and an upper-class Protestant father. When his parents married, his mother was heavily dependent on the hallucinogenic drug LSD and was repeatedly hospitalised and underwent therapy. When his father threatened to have his mother sent to a psychiatric hospital to be treated for drug dependency, she ran away with her son. His father once tracked them down and kidnapped him. His parents divorced when he was five and his mother won custody of him. Was enrolled in the Joffrey Ballet School in New York. As a youngster, lived in a series of squatters' apartments without running water or electricity on New York City's Lower East Side while his mother was on welfare. His mother later made a living by driving a taxi and making papier maché puppets. At the age of twelve, was forced to attend an Ashram School where he studied yoga and meditation. Was forbidden from watching films in colour and grew up to love seeing silent black and white films at a local revival cinema. Made his screenwriting and directorial debut with Everything Is Illuminated in 2005. Was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 2006. Has a lucrative side career narrating documentaries and commercials. Has three half-brothers from his mother's previous marriages and one half-brother from his father's previous marriage.
