"It's not a deaf movie"

The Tribe is catching movie reviewers off guard. Set in a Ukrainian boarding school for the deaf and made exclusively in Ukrainian Sign Language, many assume the film has "more to do with the novelty of sign language than any merit of the actual film." Sara Nović, who is deaf, found much more. She writes, "What sets this film apart is the fact that the deaf people here are people first." Yana Novikova is one of the leads and Nović interviewed her  here. Below is a clip from the film.
