Narrated by Willem Dafoe, DO DONKEYS ACT encourages us to respect a major language barrier we might not otherwise consider, the mystery and intrigue of donkey utterances. We are invited to "step into their shade and listen closely" as we attune to a series of dramatic performances in which we eavesdrop on donkeys speaking amongst themselves.. Reclaiming the donkey from the indignity of a centuries old master slave relationship in which the dominant image of the donkey has been negative (stubborn, buffoon, jackass, laborer, trickster and fool), DO DONKEYS ACT’S ethno-poetic-animal-fiction takes its playfully self-reflexive cues from Jean Rouch and Chris Marker.. Official Selection at Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.. Nominated for the DOX:AWARD at the Copenhagen International Documentary Festival. Nominated for the Art Doc Award at the Sheffield International Documentary Festival.. "By letting us reach our own conclusions about the meanings of various interactions between people and beasts, the film creates space for a contemplation of animal consciousness and human responsibility." - Norman Wilner, NOW Toronto
