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.

Do Donkeys Act is a remarkable work of anti-anthropocentrism, subverting human presumptions and power to glorify donkeys in a unique way.

it's the footage of the donkeys themselves - as they enter sanctuaries, endure medical procedures, voice hair-raising hee-haws, and gaze at us - that leave the deepest impression. We can't help but identify with the animals' fear, curiosity and trust.

They've done an amazing job, recording donkeys in action without any of the standard documentary conventions.
