Drafthouse acquires THE TRIBE, a tale about a deaf boarding school told only using sign language! See the trailer!
Drafthouse Films has acquired THE TRIBE out of Cannes, where it won three Critics' Week Awards last month. The Ukranian film, by Miroslav Slaboshpitsky, takes place in a ramshackle boarding school for the deaf where sex (and prostitution) are rampant, and features a cast entirely comprised of deaf actors. Thus, the characters interact solely through sign language, with nary a subtitle in sight to clue us in as to the specifics of what they're saying.
It sounds like a very brave, distinctive film, one which has already gotten a host of positive reviews, and a potential indie hit or awards grabber for Drafthouse.
"(THE TRIBE is) the most breathtaking film of Cannes...As I was watching THE TRIBE, the goosebumps on my arms quickly signaled that I was seeing something truly special. Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy is a massive talent. I am confident that he will quickly become a world-renowned director, and I am excited and proud to be sharing his striking first feature with North America."
Here be the trailer.
There's no release date yet, but expect a limited theatrical rollout, followed or accompanied by a VOD release.
