EO, a gray 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 in a journey marked by absurdity and warmth in equal measure. Legendary filmmaker Jerzy Skolimowski directs one of his most free and visually inventive films yet, placing the viewer directly in the heart and mind of the four-legged protagonist.

Polish director Jerzy Skolimowski is one of the most acclaimed directors in post-war European cinema. With over twenty films to his name, Skolimowski’s work as a director includes the Berlin Golden Bear winner The Departure, Cannes Grand Prix winner The Shout, the political drama Moonlighting, and The Lightship, for which he won Best Director at Venice Film Festival. As a writer, he is known for his work on Innocent Sorcerer (1960) and Knife In The Water (1962). After a hiatus from directing, Skolimowski returned to Cannes in 2008 with the critically acclaimed thriller Four Nights with Anna, which opened the Directors’ Fortnight and also won the Grand Prix de Jury at Tokyo International Film Festival. In 2010 his film Essential Killing won the Special Jury Prize at Venice International Film Festival. In 2016, Jerzy Skolimowski received the Lifetime Achievement Golden Lion from Venice Film Festival. As an actor, he has appeared in White Nights, Eastern Promises, Before Night Falls and The Avengers.
