2023 Oscar Nominee Best International Film
Legendary Polish filmmaker Jerzy Skolimowski directs one of the most acclaimed films of the year and one of his most free and visually inventive creations.
Liberated from the traveling circus after protests by animal activists, EO, a grey donkey with melancholic eyes, begins a trek across the Polish and Italian countryside. Along the way he experiences cruelty and kindness in equal measure, all the while observing the follies and triumphs of humankind. We see the world through EO’s eyes and it includes its fair share of harsh encounters with beastly humans. Yet there are also moments of heart-stopping tenderness and beauty.
Simultaneously down to earth and out of this world, this Cannes Jury Prize-winning and Oscar-nominated feature demands to be seen on the big screen.
