• Dir: Jerzy Skolimowski

  • Poland/Italy, 2022, Polish/Italian/English, 88mins, DCP

  • Cast: Sandra Drzymalska, Lorenzo Zurzolo, Mateusz Kościukiewicz, Isabelle Huppert

A modern world of frailty and cruelty seen through the melancholic eyes of a donkey, Skolimowski’s homage to Robert Bresson’s Au Hasard Balthazar is permeated with unambiguous symbolism in human nature. Torn apart from his loving circus friend by animal rights activists, EO is cast into a turbulent adventure, enduring the wheel of fortune as he witnesses savagery and experiences suffering. Draped in striking red filters and electronic score, this Cannes-Jury-Prize-winner sees the legendary Polish director take his cinematic experiment to unprecedented dimensions; his extremely visceral direction, in all its strangeness and austerity, transcends life and death with poetic mysticism.
