SIFF Cinema Uptown presents the newest movie directed by the great Jerzy Skolimowski, “EO”. The film has won a Grand Jury Prize at the 2022 Cannes Festival (as a cowinner) and is the official entry from Poland to the 2023 Oscars, in the Best International Feature category.
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.
