Ukrainian film The Earth Is Blue As An Orange received the Cinema Eye Honors 2021 award. The picture by Iryna Tsilyk won the prize in the Spotlight Award category.

According to the State Film Agency of Ukraine, the prize was founded in the U.S. to pay tribute to the hallmark mastery and innovations in documentary films.

The documentary “follows single mother Anna and her four children as they document their lives under siege in Ukraine. Eldest daughter Mira dreams of becoming a cinematographer. As bombs descend on neighboring homes, the family construct, act in, and edit stylized scenes of dangerous predicaments they’ve lived to tell. Mira’s re-creations ratchet up the drama, using local soldiers, tanks, and even her own grandmother to tell terrifying tales of survival. Meanwhile, Iryna quietly captures their more quotidian moments during their shoots and in between takes… Eventually, the two projects fuse into a single vision that gorgeously encapsulates the extremes of war, both its explosive trauma and its mundane peripheral existence in everyday life”.
