Today I want to talk to you about an animal who has, over the centuries, gone from exalted to vilified.
Today I want to tell you about the burden of burros and the plight of donkeys and explain why they mean so much to me and why they represent all animals at the mercy of humans.
In this episode, I also share two films about donkeys, Au Hasard Balthazar by Robert Bresson — one of my favorite films of all time — and EO by Jerzy Skolimowski, a film inspired by Balthazar and packed with as much power as its predecessor.
A version of this episode originally aired in 2007 but was in much need of an update. This is not just a rebroadcast; it is a re-worked and re-recorded episode about these magnificent and misunderstood animals.
