★★★★ "I can’t stop thinking about it." Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
"A formally audacious coup de cinema that marks a stunning writing-directing debut for Ukrainian filmmaker." Variety
A visceral cinematic experience like no other, The Tribe is a story that needs no translation. Performed entirely in sign-language, the film evokes, and reinvents, the conventions of silent cinema.
Deaf-mute Sergey becomes embroiled in the illegal activities of the fearsome gang that rule the specialised boarding school he attends. However, his burgeoning love for a fellow student soon leads him onto a collision course with the gang’s hierarchy.
The Tribe, dir. Miroslav Slaboshpitsky, Ukraine 2014, 131 mins, sign-language with no subtitles.
