'The Tribe' Trailer & PosterForeign Posters Trailers
The official U.S. trailer and poster of Miroslav Slaboshpitsky's Ukrainian sign language film, The Tribe has been released and it is bloody beautiful! I saw the film last year at AFI FEST and there is no film I fell more madly and deeply in love with than this film right here that is wholly in Ukrainian sign-language, no translation. The film follows Sergey, a new student to a deaf boarding school as he navigates the school politics of the students and the culture within it. This film made me realize why I fell in love with cinema in the first place. Transformative, transcending, and powerful, The Tribe dares to grab you by your core and shake it!
The tagline to The Tribe is "Love and hate need no translation" which could not be more true in this case as Slaboshpitsky creates a singularly unique and universal piece of cinema that transcends all the barriers and boundaries of most films which is language. As his directorial debut feature, The Tribe is a groundbreaking and monumental film that needs to be experienced in its entirety! Look at the beautifully layered craftsmanship of the poster which presents the beauty within the harsh environment. Thank the heavens that Drafthouse Films is finally releasing the film on June 17th. Get ready to have your mind blown!
