The GOODS from The Cinematheque
Vancouver, BC | Made entirely in (Ukranian) sign language, presented without subtitles or voice over, festival sensation The Tribe is coming to The Cinematheque for an exclusive first run. Ukrainian prodigy Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy’s controversial, violent, astonishing debut follows a teenager newly enrolled at a boarding school for the deaf as he’s initiated into a brutal teenaged gang engaged in robbery, drugs, and prostitution.
“Boom. Just like that. Film is never the same” (Darren Aronofsky).
“I can’t stop thinking about it… One of this year’s strangest and most disturbing films” (The Guardian).
“Pretty much every single thing about The Tribe is impressive” (Sight & Sound)
