Exclusive: Clip From Cannes Winner ‘The Tribe’ Follows You In The Dark

Exclusive: Clip From Cannes Winner 'The Tribe' Follows You In The Dark

While the summer has no shortage of event movies, that usually code phrase for explosions or special effects. But “The Tribe” brings something truly unique to the table. One of the sensations of last year’s Cannes Critics’ Week (where it nabbed a Grand Prize) the film is told in sign language but with no translation, no voice over, and no subtitles.

Directed by Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy, the film is set in a Ukrainian school for the deaf, and follows new student Sergey (Grigoriy Fesenko), who gets protection from a rough gang that soon becomes his new social clique. And as he follows them into bad behaviour, things get complicated when he falls for a classmate, who is also one of the escorts for the gang.

Drafthouse Films is bringing the movie to cinemas, but they are going beyond just making sure the film lands in arthouses. They are making “The Tribe” a roadshow event, taking the movie around the country with see-it-before-it’s-gone screenings. In addition, there will be sneak previews in NY, LA, Austin, Boston, Charlotte, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Seattle and Washington DC in June with director Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy and star Yana Novikova in attendance for Q&As following select screenings.
