After being removed from a traveling circus, which is the only life he’s ever known, a gray donkey named EO begins a trek across the Polish and Italian countryside, experiencing cruelty and kindness in equal measure, all the while observing the follies and triumphs of humankind. During his travels, EO is both helped and hindered by a cast of characters including a young Italian priest (Lorenzo Zurzolo), a Countess (Isabelle Huppert), and a rowdy Polish soccer team. EO puts the viewer in the perspective of its four-legged protagonist. It speaks to the world around us, pointing out societal ills and serving as warning to the dangers of neglect and inaction, all while taking us on a quest for freedom. Poland, Italy, 2022, 88 minutes, in Polish, Italian, English, French and Spanish, with English subtitles.

“THE #1 FILM OF THE YEAR. Remarkable…no movie that I’ve seen this year has moved me as deeply, made me feel as optimistic about cinema or engaged me with such intellectual vigor as ‘EO,’ whose octogenarian genius auteur and all the donkeys who play EO – Hola, Tako, Marietta, Ettore, Rocco and Mela – deserve all the love and the carrots, too.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“One of the greatest films I’ve ever seen. Skolimowski has made a film that in its delicacy and grandeur is in a class by itself.” – Amy Taubin, Artforum

“Brilliant…this could be the year’s most breathtakingly beautiful movie.” – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“EO is a thrillingly imaginative piece of filmmaking. The film is so brash, freewheeling and inventive that, if I didn’t know Skolimowski had made it, I’d have assumed it was the work of a brilliant 25 year old discovering what they – and the movies – can do.” – John Powers, NPR’s Fresh Air

“There is no more beautiful-looking film this year…EO may be one of the greatest movies ever made about the spirit of animals, as much as we can know it.” – Stephanie Zacharek, TIME
