Oscars 2023. What is EO about?
EO tells the story of a journey of a donkey from a Polish circus to Italy. In the course of its wandering, it gets into the hands of various people: a circus artist, football yobs, a LGV driver, or a priest.
Skolimowski’s film has already received a couple of awards, including the European Film Award for Music for Paweł Mykietyn, the European University Film Award for Jerzy Skolimowski or the Jury Prize during the 75th Cannes Film Festival.
