The Earth is Blue as an Orange

“The Earth is Blue as an Orange” is the story about a family living in the front-line warzone of Donbas, Ukraine. While the outside world is made of bombings and chaos, single mother Anna and her four children have managed to keep their house as a safe haven, full of life and full of light. Every member of the family has a passion for cinema, driving them to shoot, edit and screen a film inspired by their own life at a time of war. Does art have the power in war times?
