To celebrate the release of The Tribe (14th September), we’re giving away three copies of the movie on DVD.
The Tribe is written and directed by Ukrainian filmmaker Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy and tells the story of a deaf mute teenager who enters a specialized boarding school where, to survive, he becomes part of a wild organization – the tribe. His love for one of the concubines will unwillingly lead him to break all the unwritten rules within the Tribe’s hierarchy.
The story is told purely through sign language without the use of subtitles or voiceover and features a cast comprised entirely of non-professional, deaf actors including leads Grigory Fesenko as Sergey and Yana Novikova as Anna.
The film received its world premiere at Cannes, dominating the Independent Critics’ Week awards, winning the Nespresso Grand Prize, the France 4 Visionary Award and the Gan Foundation Support for Distribution grant.
This competition is a game promoted by The Book, The Film, The T-Shirt and every decision is final in every situation and no correspondence will be entered into.
