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. 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.
Director/ Script: Iryna Tsilyk, Ukraine
Producer: Anna Kapustina / Albatros Communicos, Ukraine
Producer: Giedrė Žickytė / Moonmakers, Lithuania

Winner of the Directing Award for World Cinema Documentary at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, THE EARTH IS AS BLUE AS AN ORANGE stands not only as a remarkable document of the Russo-Ukrainian War through the lens - literally - of this family's creative process, but as an optimistic testament to the power of art and beauty in the face of destruction.
