The Tribe

Director: Miroslav Slaboshpitsky
- Crime/Drama (Fiction) - Ukraine - 126 Minutes - Unrated

May 14, 2016 @ 2:00 pm

Event Navigation

Fictional exposé of a boarding school for Deaf teens in the Ukraine. Cinematically superb, harrowing in its content but compelling, this film is not for the faint of heart. What makes it utterly unique, in addition to its unusual cinematography, is that there is no spoken dialogue: it is completely in Ukrainian sign language, thus one can only watch and interpret. The film has provoked fierce debate within the Deaf and hearing communities, as well as fascination among film critics, leading some to call it a deaf “Lord of the Flies.” A metaphor on joining and being part of a “tribe.” Contains graphic violence and sexual content.

Panel discussion with  Mary Essex, (Vermont Association of the Deaf ), athlete Yosef Osheyak and other members of the Deaf community, with ASL interpreters.sign-p
