MY DONKEY, MY LOVER & I film still

Dubbed Eat, Bray, Love by The Guardian, this warm, droll, winning tale of female enlightenment focuses on Antoinette, a French elementary school teacher (Laure Calamy of Call My Agent!) who impulsively decides to spend part of her summer vacation on the same arduous, weeklong mountain hike—accompanied by a donkey—that her married lover is doing with his wife, child, and another donkey. (He’s unaware that his girlfriend is trailing him.) Inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes. “An easy stride of a film that’s bubbling with joy.” –Austin Chronicle. Cleveland theatrical premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 96 min.

General admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D.holders, and those age 25 & under $8.

Face masks, though always recommended, must be worn by filmgoers only when the CDC’s community risk level for Covid in Cuyahoga County is HIGH. Visit for the current community risk level and see the “Face Coverings” section for our detailed mask requirements.

As a reminder, filmgoers can park for free in Lot 73 and in the Institute's annex lot, and should enter CIA via nearby Entrance C. Click here for a map.
