Here is a link to the film page on the Tribeca website as well:
Consuming Spirits, directed and written by Chris Sullivan. (USA) – World Premiere, Narrative. Nearly 15 years in the making, Chris Sullivan’s Consuming Spirits is a meticulously constructed tour de force of experimental animation. Shooting frame by frame in 16mm, Sullivan seamlessly blends together a range of techniques into a distinct, signature visual style. In the process, he constructs a hypnotic, layered narrative, a suspenseful gothic tale that tracks the intertwined lives of three kindred spirits working at a local newspaper in a Midwestern rust belt town.
ASIFA-East warmly thanks the Tribeca Film Festival for this exciting opportunity!
