In the surreal environment in the Ukrainian war zone Donbass, between exploding grenades and shootings in the streets, four siblings and their mother try to live their everyday life. Due to their passion for film and in order to understand the present together, they make a film about what they have experienced and still witness. The script is discussed at the kitchen table, the living room is converted into a studio and the family members open up to each other and the camera. Between hopelessness and cohesion, filmmaking here becomes a meaningful hold. THE EARTH IS BLUE AS AN ORANGE is a film within a film, whose multifaceted impact becomes visible: a possibility for reflection, a family and community project, giving space for agency, an anchor in a time of crisis, a possibility to capture experiences - for the present and for the future. A sensitive portrait, pleading for the importance of film in a state of emergency.
Originally planned as a traditional cinema festival, this human world 2020 was redesigned as a hybrid festival to finally become this human world outlines.
this human world outlines is an online edition of the festival - with the wish to involve those loyal partner cinemas at a later date, from which we have to say goodbye for the time being.
A large part of the festival programme that was initially planned for the cinemas will now be shown online at this human world Festival-Hub during the festival period from 3 to 13 December. Many films will nevertheless be accompanied by pre-recorded Q&As, directors' statements and live discussion formats in the virtual space.
Unfortunately, other films and parts of the programme originally planned for the festival had to be cancelled due to the complete reorganisation of the festival format. However, it was important to us to have those films that are not shown online still mentioned in our festival programme - as a reminder that our programme was put together with the intention to be screened in cinemas.
An online platform as an addition to the cinema can be a wonderful place to expand a critical platform - but it will never replace the value and importance of physical interaction.
