Special Fundraising Screening

The Earth is Blue as an Orange

Wednesday 23 March, 6.45pm

All proceeds will go to WithUkraine.org, an online global platform vetted by Cambridge Ukrainian Studies and built by the Embassy of Ukraine in the United Kingdom to provide urgent humanitarian relief to families on the ground in Ukraine. 

Join us for a special screening of The Earth is Blue as an Orange.

Exquisitely shot and bold in its approach, director Iryna Tsilyk’s documentary follows single mother Anna and her four children as they document their lives under siege in Donbas, Ukraine. 

 Questioning the power of cinema, and the magical world it helps create during times of disaster, this exceptional documentary won the World Cinema Documentary Award at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.

With miraculous insight, the film observes a family—and a filmmaker— who cope with war by using their cameras and working in tandem to create meaning and to stay human. 

The film will be introduced by Dr Rory Finnin, Associate Professor of Ukrainian Studies at the University of Cambridge. Q&A to follow the screening.
