The conflict in Ukraine remains one of the biggest unknowns on the world stage. The world of cinema and documentary work provides a privileged route into understanding what is happening. In The Earth Is Blue as an Orange, the filmmaker Iryna Tsilyk travels to the war front to meet a family that attempts to cope with existing under constant threat. Anna and her children have already witnessed everything. Now they begin to deal with the trauma of war by partaking in a film that replicates many of their most difficult moments, allowing us to take an intimate look at the conflict and its repercussions. The film won the Directing Award at the last Sundance Festival beginning a journey that has made it one of the most important works of the moment.
