Chicago Filmmakers is proud to present Suzan Pitt s Perverse Imaginarium, a retrospective of short films created over a thirty-year period. The hallucinatory dreamscape of animator and painter Suzan Pitt is inhabited by uncanny apparitions, unglued personas, and fantastic creatures. Working within the idiom of the surreal, her films delve into the unconscious to do battle with our deepest fears and desires. Pitt s style strikes the perfect balance between dark humor and ontological dread, conjuring up comparisons to artists as diverse as Ren Laloux, Sara Driver, and Georgia O Keeffe.
