A Ukrainian Documentary Screening

ABOUT THE FILM
To cope with the daily trauma of living in a war-zone, Anna and her children are making a film together about their life in the most surreal surroundings.
From The Hollywood Reporter: “Iryna Tsilyk’s inventive meta-documentary The Earth Is Blue as an Orange is both a meditation on the redemptive power of cinema and an interrogation of the plight of the women and children living amid Ukraine’s multi-year war in Donbas. The film follows a Ukrainian single mother named Hanna and her four children as they try to keep their home a safe haven full of life and levity as the bombs fall and chaos unfolds around them. Every member of the family has a passion for cinema, and Tsilyk films them as they shoot their own movie inspired by their own lives in a time of war — transforming trauma into art as a way to stay human. The resulting feature won Tsilyk the best directing award for world documentary at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.”
