Don’t miss the rare chance to see this Academy Award nominated film on the big screen at Liberty Hall thanks to the Lawrence Arts Center’s Microcinema Series and the Free State Festival!

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.

Before the film, join the Lawrence Arts Center and Free State Festival to celebrate National Science on Screen® Day with Kate Barker of the Zen Donkey Experience, presenting “Donkeys are Having a Moment.”
