Watch the trailer for experimental Cannes smash ‘The Tribe’


“Love and hate need no translation.”

Heralded as a daringly experimental drama, The Tribe is a Ukranian film set at a boarding school for the deaf. There is no spoken dialogue, and no subtitles for the sign language used throughout. But that doesn’t keep this first trailer from appearing any less intense. Here’s the official synopsis: “A deaf teenager struggles to fit into the boarding school system.”

After first premiering at Cannes 2014 and winning three prizes, The Tribe made the festival circuit until we eventually caught up with it at the London Film Festival. In our review, John McEntee wrote “Once every few years a film comes along which immediately feels so original and vital that your preconceived expectations of the art form are challenged. Whilst that inspiring instinct is invoked by The Tribe, it is also suppressed by the film’s unrelenting brutality, on both a physical and metaphorical level.”

Miroslav Slaboshpitsky’s film opens on June 17 in New York. Watch the trailer below:
