The Earth Is Blue as an Orange is based on the observation of the family living in a small city in the ‘red zone’ of Donbas, one of the most severely damaged by shelling. 2014–15 were very difficult for this family. They slept in the cellar of their house every night. The house of their closest neighbours was destroyed by a mine. The children’s school was ruined too. Despite all these circumstances, the protagonists remain positive and even try to shoot films about the war by themselves. The war in Ukraine still goes on, but so does life.
