“Blue Apples” is a short drama film, about a blind painter, Violet. Ironically even girl’s name is a colour, which she cannot see or recognise. However she perceives colours differently, by its texture, smell and taste of it.
Violet gets an operation to restore her sight, but right when it is time for her to take her bandage off, she is worried that now she can lose her vision as an artist.

After writing the story, Valeriya managed to raise funds through crowd funding platform Indiegogo. That was a great start for a bright future of “Blue Apples”. Later on it was officially selected in multiple film festivals, like Glendale International Film Festival, Sochi Film Festival, Female Filmmaker Fuse Film Festival and won LA Shorts Awards.
