An interview with Iryna Tsilyk, director of The Earth Is Blue As an Orange, presented in the International Competition of the 2020 One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival in Prague, Czech Republic. The film portrays the every day life of a family in a war-torn region. Specifically, it is a film depicting a family living in Donbass, Ukrain, with the peculiar hobby of making films together. Tsilyk talks with us about meeting the family and her intentions of making a film about the war that was not depressing but rather positive, uplifting and full of warmth. She also talks about her familiarity with the region and the experience of working on her debut feature documentary – as well as the challenges that this experience posed.

The Earth Is Blue as an Orange: For one mother and her children, making a film together is a way of coming to terms with the trauma of war in Donbass, Ukraine.
