USA for UNHCR is pleased to feature Uprooted, by a cast and crew of Ukrainian refugees and in solidarity with refugees around the world, along with the documentary The Earth is Blue as an Orange, Ukrainian music, art and more.
No one uprooted by war can unsee the horrors they have witnessed—this is the powerful message of “Uprooted”, a short film released by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, featuring a cast and crew of more than 50 refugees from Ukraine now living in Germany. Uprooted depicts the trauma of fleeing war and is an expression of solidarity with refugees around the world.
The Earth is Blue as an Orange
To cope with the daily trauma of living in a war-zone, a single mother and her children make a film about their life in the Donbas region of Ukraine. Director Iryna Tsilyk films the family as they shoot their own movie inspired by their lives during a time of war. The feature won the best directing award for world documentary at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.
