Chris Sullivan,
Spring 2015

Chris Sullivan is a Chicago-based animator, performance artist, and experimental filmmaker.  His film, Consuming Spirits, is a hand-made independent feature animation shot frame-by-frame on 16mm using paper cut outs, models, and tracing paper cell animation. It chronicles the lives of three characters who live in a rust belt town called Magguson, and work at its local newspaper The Daily Suggester. As the film unfolds, we find they have a long diabolical history, revolving around social service intervention, foster care, romance and hatred. Each character has family secrets to hide, and family secrets to discover. An auto accident one dark and inebriated night causes a crack in the memory vault of these intimate strangers. By film’s end all parties walk from the woods, both healed and wounded.
