Consuming Spirits (Chris Sullivan, USA, 136 min.) is the final in the “forces of Nature” series of five films to be presented by Harpur Cinema this semester. The film will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 5, and Sunday, April 7, in LH-6. Over 15 years, collaborating with friends and family, Chris Sullivan created his dark and exhilarating exploration of family secrets with pen-and-ink drawings, cut-outs and miniature models. Weaving allusions to film history, with mordant observations that explore the “realms of memory and fantasy,” A.O. Scott writes: “Consuming Spirits weaves a complicated, intoxicating spell and…the fact that these realms are represented in exaggerated, often comical pictures does not make them less disturbing…[it creates] a sense of enchantment that turns bad feelings inside out. This movie is…a wonder.” Special note: Sullivan will introduce the film on Friday, April 5, and will answer questions after the screening. Official selection: Tribeca Film Festival, Chicago International Film Festival, Raindance, 2012. Admission is $4. For questions or information, call 607-777-4998.
