EO: Digging Deeper into Movies with Nick Davis

EO, a donkey’s one-of-a-kind Pilgrim’s Progress across modern Europe, is the work of an 84-year-old master but feels like the boundary-breaking debut of a new film school graduate. In this pre-screening talk, we’ll discuss the unique challenges and questions of tracking an animal protagonist (are a donkey’s eyes the windows to a soul?), alongside other ways EO’s wild images and 21st-century technology reimagine spectatorship more broadly.

Join the Chicago International Film Festival and Nick Davis, Northwestern Professor and film critic, for a series of free interactive lectures exploring recent releases and festival films from around the world with a focus on the nuances of imagery, editing, and sound that complicate story and theme. This discussion is free and open to the public.

Please note: The discussion ticket does not include a ticket to screen the film.


This event series is made possible with the support of the Robert & Penelope Steiner Family Foundation.
