This is a road film with a difference as we follow the travels and fortunes of Eo, a donkey born in a Polish circus. Inspired by Robert Bresson's 1966 film Au Hasard Balthazar, Director Jerry Skolimowski shows us modern Europe through Eo's eyes, and we experience the happiness and despair of his encounters along the way. Eo won the Jury prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, and is Poland's entry for the 2023 Oscars.

Thanks to BFI


Bravely updating Bresson with brilliant results, Eo is a donkey-driven drama that will stick with you long after the credits roll.
Rotten Tomatoes

A beguiling and often brutal look at the life of a donkey, this hijacks your heart, your mind, your ears and your eyes from start to finish.
