Official American trailer for the Ukrainian Doc ‘The Earth is Blue as an Orange’

“A remarkable documentary about this family’s resilience and the cinema’s ability to be a means of escape.” Film Movement has unveiled an official American trailer for a documentary titled The earth is blue as an orange, made by Ukrainian filmmaker Iryna Tsilyk. This was shot and made right before the current war in Ukraine, focusing on a family living in eastern Ukraine in a region already occupied a few years earlier. Krasnohorivka: a city in the front line. A single mother Anna and her four children manage 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, it feels natural for them to record a movie during this time. The creative process questions what kind of influence cinema can have in times of disaster, and how one can imagine war through a camera. For Anna and the children, transforming trauma into a work of art is the ultimate way to remain human. This premiered at Sundance 2020 and played at Hot Docs, Berlinale, MoMA and lots of parties. It’s worth seeing.

To cope with the daily trauma of living in a war zone, Anna and her children make a film together about their lives in the most surreal surroundings of war-torn eastern Ukraine. The winner of the Director’s Award for World Cinema Doc at the Sundance Film Festival 2020, The Earth is Blue as an Orange, stands not only as a remarkable document of the Ukrainian war through the lens – literally – of this family’s creative process, but as an optimistic testimony about the power of art and beauty in the light of destruction. The earth is blue as an orange is directed by Ukrainian poet / filmmaker Iryna Tsilykmaking her second feature after the second doc Invisible battalion previously, as well as a few short films. Produced by Anna Kapustina and Giedre Zickyte. This one originally premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2020 a few years back and it also starred at the Berlinale.
