Feature Film: The Story

LOVE SURVIVES THE GULAG

The tale of Love surviving the Marxist USSR Gulags. As much as the Soviet state tried to destroy them and what they stood for…intellectual and artistic freedom, they survived, thanks to Faith. Now nothing is going to stop them. Two short films of the film have already been filmed, Gulag Barashevo (the short) and Gulag Vorkuta.

USSR Horrors of Gulag Death Camps

GULAG BARASHEVO will be a feature film taking place in the horrors of the  U.S.S.R. Gulag camps where millions died. We see mass graves. We witness last prayers before being executed for the act of praying. It is a powerful heartbreaking love story filled with the tragedy of history and an exceptional human Love. The story starts when a Dissident Poet, Vera, is torn from her husband Vlad, and brutally interrogated. Vera resists the Marxist Commissars. She is condemned to the Gulag death camps.

We think all is lost because so few had ever escaped the USSR Gulag death camps.

But something in Vlad galvanizes and he becomes the Hero of Slavic legends. Vera makes it to Freedom, she is able to escape.

 

The Power of Faith and Family

The Marxist USSR tried to destroy people’s individual Faiths, outside of the worship of the God of Marx. Destruction of people’s organic ability to hope and believe was key to destroying their ability to have courage and resist the inhumane Marxist system. Further in destroying the Individual was the destruction of the Family, to break the Individual the family network and support had to be destroyed. This film shows many scenes where people of Faith are persecuted, tortured. killed, dumped in mass graves. Religious Freedom was the enemy of Marxism.

Art and Beauty

Art and Beauty were considered “Bourgeois” and had to be destroyed in the Soviet system. People who had first editions of Yeats or the French editions of Dostoyevsky were sent to the Gulags and exterminated. This is a film about Beauty, natural and human-made.

USSR Decadence 

The USSR had private jets, prostitutes, orgies, cocaine, vodka — but only for the Marxist oligarch elites. In fact the USSR was more decadent than the Roman Empire. For example, the Communist Party elite oligarchs flew around the country in Yak-40 luxurious private jets, while tens of millions of “Politically Incorrect” intellectuals and dissidents were suffering in the Gulag camps down below them.

Tatania character plays the part of the courtesan, the prostitute for the Marxist elites, in scenes which show the utter moral depravity, cocaine use, “high class” prostitution, of the USSR Marxist system. Propaganda commonly portrays Marxist USSR as an almost Amish-like “austere” idyllic utopia. When it was anything but. The corruption and decadence of the USSR is shown in this film. Tatiana wears her Blackmarket Chanel dress and puts her arms around Commissars who give her cocaine and vodka. This film blasts the lid on the PC propaganda of the USSR and shows what it was really like. The Marxist Oligarchs, people say that Soviet propaganda said that there were no super-rich oligarchs, that they just magically appeared in 1991. The fact is Lenin allowed private capitol in 1923 with the NEP (New Economic Policy), and private Enterprises were allowed. These private enterprises were where the Marxist oligarchs hid their money, much as they do today. We show this corruption of the Soviet Union in this film.

Individual Courage

Vera and Vlad show extreme individual courage in combating and eventually overcoming the oppression of the Marxist Gulag. The height of the film has them escape together — despite all odds.

Conclusion

This is a story that has to be told. This is a story that has never been told before.
