THE TRIBE follows Sergey as he enrolls at a boarding school for deaf-mute teenagers. As the school reveals itself to be a violent underworld of organized crime, we are drawn into the drama on the students’ own terms. Using only sign language to narrate the movie, director Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy reinforces and underlines the visual nature of the film medium. Winning top honours at the Cannes critics’ week earlier this year, THE TRIBE is one of the year’s most striking and original dramas.
NB! The film contains scenes of explicit content.
