The Orange Sky (Ukrainian: Помаранчеве Небо). This film was made in 2006, after the Orange Revolution which took place in Ukraine. It was directed by Oleksandr Kyryenko with the Cinema Production.


The movie tells of a love story of two greatly different young people. The heroine, Ivanna is a young girl with ambitiously nationalistic beliefs in the power of democracy. She expresses her patriotism by voicing, often protesting the present regime of Ukraine in the favor of revolutionary ideals. Mark, the protagonist, on the other hand is a privileged son of a government official whose life is filled with excitement from being able to get everything his heart desires. The two meet in the midst of a national crisis when a series of massive protests and political events were unfolding in Ukraine. Of course with the meeting, the two fall in love forever changing each other's paths. Mark is unwillingly becoming estranged from his comfortable life and seeks to obtain understanding of what drives Ivana and her friends to stand up to authority. Eventually two are united in one cause: fighting for a better future for their country. The movie uses a semi-reenactment of the actual events of the winter in Ukraine during the Orange Revolution. The protests, the rioting, the cold weather are all there.



The “Orange Sky” movie seems to represent exactly that transition of original cinematography into a less sophisticated form of movie productions such as presently known as “pop culture” and “show business”.[citation needed]
