Nearly a year after earning the Cannes Critics’ Week Grand Prize, Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy’s Ukrainian drama “The Tribe” is finally gearing up for its stateside release this June. Indiewire brought you the film’s exclusive poster yesterday, and today distributor Drafthouse Films has released a heart-pounding new trailer for the unforgettable coming-of-age story. 

Following a new student at a boarding school for the deaf as he’s drawn into its institutional systems of crime and prostitution, “The Tribe” is startlingly told in sign language without any subtitles. The result is a film that forces the viewer to study every movement and facial expression of the actors on screen, and the new trailer foreshadows the evocative, haunting silence of this bold storytelling choice.

If all the critical praise included in the trailer is any indication, “The Tribe” is one of the summer season’s must-see masterpieces. The film hits select theaters beginning June 17.
