¡Globalquerque!: International Cinema Series: The Earth Is Blue as an Orange
Single mother Hanna and her four children live in the front-line war zone of Donbas, Ukraine. While the outside world is made up of bombings and chaos, the family is managing to keep their home as a safe haven, full of life and full of light. Every member of the family has a passion for cinema, motivating them to shoot a film inspired by their own life during a time of war. The creative process raises the question of what kind of power the magical world of cinema could have during times of disaster, and how to picture war through fiction. For Hanna and the children, transforming trauma into a work of art is the ultimate way to stay human.
