The Earth is Blue as an Orange
Institute of Contemporary Arts

The Earth is Blue as an Orange, dir. Iryna Tsilyk, Lithuania / Ukraine 2020, 74 min., Russian and Ukrainian with English subtitles


The first feature from Ukrainian director Irina Tsilyk focuses on single mother Anna and her family, portraying their daily lives through their own filmmaking as a way to cope amid the conflict in eastern Ukraine’s Donbas region. The Earth Is Blue as an Orange echoes, through a collaborative and multilayered film construction, the filmmaking process of Anna’s family during shifting balances and fragile grounds. Unforgiving grey landscapes and military interventions loom over the family, while their collective and individual intimacies intertwine within the creative process, serving as an act of resistance against five years of ruthless brutality.
 
This screening is followed by a Q&A with director Iryna Tsilyk.
