Sullivan is one of the rawest and most authentic voices in animation. He is a filmmaker that has devoted a lot of energy to interrogating his various obsessions and using the medium of animation to give them a profound and complex voice. He is a master of a variety of hand-made animation techniques and seamlessly switches between them as he follows his own sense of dark humour down the various underlit pathways that it drags him into. His films can be shocking and hilarious in equal measure and say MUCH about the conflicted humanity that inhabits most of us. There is just nobody else making films like this – they are soft acid, bitter sugar and bright colours in the shade.

‘Consuming Spirits’ ropes, breaks and saddles-up a collection of quietly disturbed - but utterly human – souls for a long trail ride through an emotional landscape riven with spectacularly dystopian intrigues exploring the breadth of enigmas that exist within every person. Based around the travails, triumphs, secrets, often unhinged imaginings and hopeless solutions of three principle characters who inhabit (and who are probably inhabited by) a small, blue-collar American town of the type that the world has quietly, ashamedly turned its face from, ‘Consuming Spirits’ twists a winding path through a complex exploration of how people work out how to survive with and without the help of the world they have chosen not to leave.
