THE EARTH IS BLUE AS AN ORANGE

Special screening to support Ukraine

Cine Lumiere, London

Friday, 11 March, 7.50pm – free, but booking essential

As the Russian Federation’s unprovoked military invasion of Ukraine continues to escalate, we are coming together in solidarity with Ukraine to raise funds for humanitarian aid and to encourage sustained support from London.

Join us for a special screening of The Earth is as Blue as an Orange followed by a panel discussion. 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 Donbass, Ukraine.

Questioning the power of cinema and the magical world it helps create during times of disaster, this exceptional documentary, winner of the World Cinema Documentary Award in Sundance, observes, with miraculous insight, a family—and a filmmaker—cope with war using their cameras, working in tandem to create meaning out of a meaningless conflict as the ultimate way to stay human.

Donations will be collected on the night which will for the grassroots organisations providing humanitarian aid in Ukraine – with a focus on medical provision and refugee support.

#StandwithUkraine

The screening is organised by EUNIC London, Lithuanian Embassy, the French Cultural Institute, the Ukrainian Cultural Centre in London and other partners.
