SXSW Entry Citadel Gets U.S. Distribution


Ciaran Foy’s Citadel has been picked up for U.S. distribution by Cinedigm and New Video.

Based on director Foy’s real life experiences with being violently attacked and his subsequent life as an agoraphobic, Citadel is a very personal journey. The dilapidated suburbia of Edenstown casts a shadow over Tommy Cowley’s life. Trapped there by his agoraphobia since his wife was fatally attacked by twisted feral children, he nowfinds himself terrorized by the same mysterious hooded gang, who seem intent on taking his baby daughter. Torn between the help of an understanding nurse and a vigilante priest, he discovers that tobe free of his fears, he must finally face the demons of his past and enter the one place that he fears the most…the abandoned tower block known as the Citadel.

The film is expected to hit theaters later this year and DVD in 2013.
