Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy | Ukraine, France, Netherlands |2014 | 130 min. | No dialogue

As the first film acted entirely by deaf-mutes, The Tribe, with its heated discussions and schemings in sign language, succeeds in getting the hearing spectator to feel like a deaf person faced with a torrent of words that he can’t understand. An effect that plays in the film’s favor, increasing the suffocating sensation of the story it’s telling. Sergey is a youth who has just joined a boarding school for deaf-mutes and is trying to advance through the mafia hierarchy that controls the place. Beatings, thefts and extortion put him in a privileged position, thanks to which he starts to work as a pimp. That is how the spiral of violence explodes: with the heat of Sergey’s desperate love for one of the prostitutes he’s exploiting.
