Don’t miss Poland’s Official Submission to the upcoming Academy Awards on the big screen! It’s a masterpiece about (yes) a donkey who escapes from a Polish circus and experiences the highs and lows of freedom as he makes his way to Italy. Not as syrupy as Disney or as bleak as Robert Bresson’s Au Hazard Balthazar, EO simply asks that we expand our consciousness and see life on Earth through the eyes of another species.

“No movie that I’ve seen this year has moved me as deeply, or made me feel as optimistic about cinema…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, New York Times, Top Ten Movies List of 2022.
