Shot frame by frame over 15 years Consuming Spirits is an independent feature animation, chronicling the lives of three characters who live in a rust belt town called Magguson, and work at its local newspaper The Daily Suggester. Gentian Violet, Victor Blue, and Earl Gray first appear to be acquaintances. But as the film unfolds, we find they have a long diabolical history, revolving around social service intervention, romance and hatred. Each character has family secrets to hide, and family secrets to discover. An auto accident one dark, 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.
