Au Hasard Balthazar (1966) is the seemingly simple yet profoundly moving tale of a donkey in rural France. Passed from one owner to the next, treated in turn gently and harshly, Balthazar inhabits a word beyond his control. But through silence and powerlessness his trajectory becomes a stirring, transcendental allegory of purity and hope.

The film is 91min with English subtitles.
