Ukrainian film director Iryna Tsilyk received a reward at the Sundance American Film Festival

Sundance: The announcement of the victory of Iryna Tsilyk in the category “Best Director of Documentary Film” is posted on the Twitter page of the festival.

“The Earth is blue as an orange” is her debut as a filmmaker in a full-length film. The world premiere of her film took place at the Sundance Independent Film Festival in America.

“The Earth is blue as an orange,” tells the story of a family that lives in the “red zone” of Donbas, where military operations have lasted for six years. Anna and her four children overcome their daily traumas of living in the frontline zone and filmed together an amateur film about their lives in a quite surreal event.
