A documentary that introduces the unknown tradition of some people in rural areas of the Colombian Caribbean coast having sex and falling in love with donkeys. It starts off as a rite of passage ritual that fathers initiate with their sons and is carried on into their adulthood where men often end-up cheating on their wives with donkeys. There is belief among some people that boys should practice having sex with donkeys to prepare themselves for women, that it makes their penises bigger and also that it prevents them from becoming homosexuals.

From almost banned to winning Best Documentary in Australia
9 September 2012 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Donkey Love is about a very bizarre cultural tradition in Colombia. You'll learn about something you probably never even knew existed in this world, and that's what documentary film is all about. There aren't very many humorous, yet informative, documentaries but Donkey Love is on that list. It's filled with jokes, smack talk and ridiculous on screen antics. Some people will love Donkey Love and some will hate it. August 2012 sums it all up nicely when Donkey Love was almost banned in Australia ahead of the Melbourne festival, but the censors didn't ban it, and instead it played to a full-house and it went on to win Best Documentary.
