"Sometimes the donkey appears in my dreams." Jerzy Skolimowski
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival 2022, veteran filmmaker Jerzy Skolimowski's bold and brave film dares to make a wayward donkey its hero.
EO, a grey donkey with melancholic eyes and a curious spirit, begins his life as a circus performer before escaping on a trek across the Polish and Italian countryside. During his travels, he encounters an eclectic cast of characters, including a countess, a young Italian priest and a riotous Polish football team.
This wayward donkey's journey speaks to the world around us, an equine hero boldly pointing out societal ills, and serving as a warning to the dangers of neglect and inaction, all while on a quest for freedom. EO is a remarkable film that is filled with empathy, stunning cinematography and a beautiful score.
