Documentary from Ukraine
Watch The Earth is Blue As An Orange documentary for an inside look at life in the midst of war in the Donbass (Donbas) region of Ukraine.
News reports of bombs and other attacks let us know what is happening, but it is the personal stories that help us understand the human toll of war.
In this film we get to know a family living with daily danger and constant uncertainty.
We see how this family, led by a strong single mom, create a life for themselves that provides warmth and some stability despite the chaos surrounding them.
The movie is raw, horrifying and somehow hopeful.
The Earth Is Blue As An Orange
Release Date 8/23/22
Krasnohorivka is a town on the front lines of the war-torn region of Eastern Ukraine.
When poet/filmmaker Iryna Tsilyk first visits the Trofymchuk-Gladky family home, she is surprised by what she finds: while the outside world is made up of bombings and chaos, single mother Anna and her four children are managing to keep their home as a safe haven, full of life and full of light.
Every member of the family has a passion for cinema, so it feels natural for them to shoot a film inspired by their own life during a time of war.
The creative process raises the question of what kind of impact cinema might have during times of disaster, and how to picture war through the camera’s lens.
For Anna and the children, transforming trauma into a work of art is the ultimate way to stay human.
