Edmond Was a Donkey (2012) Trailer
Trailer for the animated short Edmond Was a Donkey.
Edmond is not like everybody else. A small, quiet man, Edmond has a wife who loves him and a job that he does extraordinarily well. He is, however, very aware that he is different. When his co-workers tease him by crowning him with a pair of donkey ears, he suddenly discovers his true nature. And though he comes to enjoy his new identity, an ever-widening chasm opens up between himself and others. Screenwriter and director Franck Dion's empathetic portrait of this sweet-natured individual illustrates the challenges of being true to oneself in a world filled with social conformists. Edmond just doesn't fit in: he's a donkey in a world of horses. People stare at him because of his strangeness, and are alternately curious, amused, embarrassed and uncomfortable. Since he can't bring himself to be what others expect, Edmond makes the only possible choice.
