IRC Refugee Film Festival: The Earth is Blue as an Orange

The International Rescue Committee in San Diego's annual Refugee Film Festival is going Virtual once again in 2022! We are bringing three award-winning documentary films and engaging conversation to your home on May 12, 19 and 26 at 6pm PST | Q&A at 7:30pm PST

Krasnohorivka: a town on the front lines of the war-torn region of Eastern Ukraine. When poet/filmmaker Iryna Tsilyk first visits the Trofymchuk-Gladky family home, she is surprised by what she finds: while the outside world is made up of bombings and chaos, single mother Anna and her four children are 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, so it feels natural for 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 impact cinema might have during times of disaster, and how to picture war through the camera's lens. For Anna and the children, transforming trauma into a work of art is the ultimate way to stay human.
