The Tribe

Directed by Miroslav Slaboshpitsky

The Tribe is a bold feature which confidently uses sign language to convey its story of extreme teenage behaviour in a specialised boarding school for deaf students.

Deaf mute Sergey is the new kid in class, and in this daunting new environment, he discovers the brutal hierarchy of ‘the tribe’: the school’s shadowy criminal network. By taking part of several robberies, Sergey gets propelled higher into the organisation. His acceptance into the group is cemented until he unwillingly breaks all the unwritten rules of the tribe.
