Dudu Fisher - COLORS
More than eight months have passed since Russia first invaded Ukraine, decimating a once-thriving country and shattering lives. While the ongoing conflict no longer dominates headlines, the heartbreak continues for those who were forced to leave their homes with not much more than the clothes on their backs and, in a show of support, Broadway star Dudu Fisher and filmmaker Daniel Finkelman visited the Ukraine, assisting refugees on the Polish border and promising to share their story with the world.
Featuring devastating footage of bombed out cars and the skeletal remains of buildings that were once homes, Colors depicts the depths of horror in Ukraine, reflected ten-fold in the eyes of those who remain. Haunting music and lyrics by Cecelia Margules bring the desolation and destruction to life, with Fisher’s emotional performance simultaneously offering hope for a future where Ukraine will once again be filled with beautiful, vibrant color.
The decision to travel to the war-torn country was an easy one for Fisher, whose parents were saved from the Holocaust by Ukrainian citizens and Colors is dedicated in their honor. A SparksNext production directed by Daniel Finkelman and produced by Chaya Amor, Colors is a beacon of light in the darkness, a heartfelt prayer for a time when the grey pallor of war will give way to a brighter time, one where joy and justice will finally prevail.
