“Filmmaking at its most heroic!”—Film Comment

Consuming Spirits has more in common with intimate graphic novels like David Small’s Stitches or Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home than with any live-action indie melodrama I can think of.”—New York Times

More than 15 years in the making, Chris Sullivan’s Consuming Spirits employs practically every nondigital animation technique (from hand drawn and stop motion to cut out) in meticulously telling the story of three characters whose lives are interconnected in an increasingly complex and dysfunctional manner. Sullivan produced, wrote, and directed this tale of small-town angst and loneliness that manages to inspire unbridled laughter amidst all of the beautifully depicted misery. (129 mins., HDCAM)

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
