The joint winner of the Cannes Jury Prize, Jerzy Skolimowski’s EO is a vividly realised journey from the perspective of an innocent grey donkey with melancholic eyes and a curious spirit.
EO 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 who present the good and bad in man kind, including a countess, a young Italian priest and a riotous Polish football team. EO’s journey speaks to the world around us, an equine hero boldly pointing out societal ills and serving as warning to the dangers of neglect and inaction, all while on a quest for freedom.
