BATTLE OF LENINGRAD comes to Digital, Blu-ray & DVD

battle of leningrad judy
World War II’s Siege of Leningrad – in which Nazi Germany blockaded the major Soviet city for 28 months – ranks as perhaps the single most brutal and devastating military campaign in modern history. Now, the story of this unspeakable siege is told through the lives of people caught in the middle of it in BATTLE OF LENINGRAD. This monumental production will premiere on digital platforms and also on blu-ray and DVD, on December 3, 2019.
September 1941. On the Eastern Front of World War II, Kostya (Andrey Mironov-Udalov) and his fellow Russian cadets are tasked with evacuating thousands of civilians out of war-torn Leningrad, to safety aboard Barge 752. While Kostya’s commander initially worries that the barge may be too outdated to safely sail across Lake Ladoga, the evacuation is completed, even allowing Kostya time to smuggle his fiancé, Nastya (Maria Melnikova), aboard the barge to join him on the journey. But catastrophe quickly finds them.
An unrelenting storm strikes that evening, and Barge 752 begins to break down and leak, threatening to sink. Kostya, Nastya and the rest of the ship’s occupants are hopeful for a rescue the next morning, but instead find themselves in even greater danger when the first responders are not rescue planes but enemy aircraft, ready for attack.
An epic film produced on a grand scale, but one that focuses intimately on the unique individuals caught up in an immense tragedy, writer-director Aleksey Kozlov’s BATTLE OF LENINGRAD will appeal to fans of Dunkirk, Saving Private Ryan, Stalingrad and Titanic.
Jak-Luke Sharp of Nerdly said BATTLE OF LENINGRAD is “at times full of rage, and the more intense moments on board the barge with the imminent attack [are] played with a terrific atmosphere.”

Use Me Starring #1 Mental Humiliatrix Ceara Lynch On Digital and VOD November 26 From Gravitas Ventures

Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company, has acquired international and United States rights to suspense thriller USE ME, written, directed by and starring Julian Shaw and the world’s most famous “mental humiliatrix” Ceara Lynch. The film will be available on Digital HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand in the U.S. and Canada on November 26, 2019.

From award-winning documentarian Julian Shaw (Darling! The Pieter-Dirk Uys Story, Cup of Dreams), the director plays himself, alongside real-life “mental humiliatrix” Ceara Lynch in her feature length film debut, as an ambitious documentary filmmaker who discovers the darkest parts of himself when he turns his camera on a beautiful woman who humiliates men for money. The film also stars Jazlyn Yoder (A Dark Place, “Chicago P.D.”), Joseph D. Reitman (Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, “Happy”) and Sarah Armanious (“Fighting Season,” “Cleverman”).

USE ME was produced by Jonathon Green of Green Light Productions.  Lynch also serves as an executive producer.

In USE ME, Australian filmmaker Julian Shaw (as himself) travels to the United States to direct a documentary about ‘mental humiliatrix’ Ceara Lynch (herself), who has successfully built a career as a leading star in this new niche of online sex work by humiliating men online without ever exposing herself or meeting them in person.  Soon, Julian develops feelings for his subject, but could it be that Ceara is blackmailing clients who trusted her with deeply personal materials? What was meant to be entertainment quickly becomes a matter of life and death.

The film utilizes the stylistic features of a documentary and by “blurring the line between fantasy and reality in ways both subtle and overt, it manages to keep you guessing right up until the end.” (FimInk)

USE ME won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sydney Underground Film Festival (2019) and Best Editing at the Brooklyn Film Festival (2019).
