A true story of Russian Civil War inspires the making of "The Tsarevich"

The Tsarevich by Geoffroy Faugérolas


It’s hard to come by an independent movie, which carries so much passion, drama and major competition that makes it to first base. But a film entitled, The Tsarevich (2013) does more than that - it’s a homerun in drama and storytelling based on real events that occurred to the Imperial family of Russia in 1918 at the verge of their execution.

The Tsarevich -“The Romanov’s story is extremely moving and it has never been told through the point of Alexei who was beloved and respected by all,” said Award-Winning Producer and Director Geoffroy Faugérolas.

“The Romanov’s story is extremely moving and it has never been told through the point of Alexei who was beloved and respected by all,” said Award-Winning Director Geoffroy Faugérolas. “Their tragic end deserves to be told so that we do not forget the details of one of the most powerful countries in the world. After the family was executed, the red army defeated the white army. Vladimir Lenin was in power to create the USSR.”

The Romanovs are being held captive by the secret police of the Bolsheviks, a communist party lead by Vladimir Lenin and under Yakov Yurovsky's watch. Alexei, the only heir of the throne that suffers from hemophilia and therefore, lives a very intricate life, where nobody sees his inner valor and strength.

It stars Mark Fitzgerald (Because These Kids Are, 2013 and What I Did Last Summer: Army Brat Blues, 2012, Christina Franco, (Barefoot, 2014, Anna Nicole, 2013 TV movie) and Mark Moses, of Desperate Housewives and Mad Men, who was a high school quarterback in Evanston, Illinois and later got into NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and graduated with a degree in theater.

Moses immediately landed a role in the Broadway production, "Slab Boys", with Sean Penn and Kevin Bacon, and was working off-Broadway and in regional theaters when he met Oliver Stone, who cast him as "Lt. Wolfe" in the academy award-winning film, Platoon (1986). Oliver also cast Mark in Born on the Fourth of July (1989) and The Doors (1991). He brings a lot of drama to the story and film Tsarevich. The film is being shopped for more investors and worldwide distribution.

The Tsarevich is a riveting, emotional, touching and inspiring story of a young boy, suffering from hemophilia that fights prejudice to defend the one he loves. The powerful story touches everyone and has a great range of characters and emotional depth to it.

The Tsarevich already raised interests in European and U.S markets and will be sent to festivals worldwide.

The film was produced by Alena Burova and co-produced by Camila Medeiros (Alice, 2013). The movie has great music, too by Composer Matt Milan. Milan is a multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles. The well-known composer produces, arranges and mixes in his professional studio. The melodies written by Matt Milan are carried by a strong emotion that follows the thread of the stories and enhances the feelings from the images.

You can find The Tsarevich fan page on Facebook:, too. This 2014 indie film is the one to watch this year in Hollywood.

"We are not holding a LA premier, yet, because we are waiting for the festivals results," said Director Geoffroy Faugérolas.
