Tribu is a winning entry in Cinemalaya 2007 that bagged the Best Director, Best Film and Best Sound awards. This film is written, produced and directed by Jim Libiran. Get the synopsis here: TRIBU SYNOPSIS
What they say about TRIBU:
“(A) grand and graphic depiction of contemporary Tondo, Manila, its raw passion and searing violence, its terrible social conditions and conflicting social mores, and its people’s coruscating embrace of both the sacred and the profane, the filial and the tribal, the tender and the vicious.”
CINEMALAYA 2007 JURY on TRIBU’s Best Picture Award
Best Sound award for Mark Laccay for “its masterful rendering of the noise and hum of the inner cities, the racket and resonance of the asphalt jungle.”
CINEMALAYA 2007 JURY on TRIBU’s Best Sound Award
“As in Lino Brocka’s social realist domestic dramas, there seems a fatalism in ‘Tribu’ with its inexorable drive toward violence and death, and the viewer may balk at its utter violence, its downright fatalism. But again and again, the movie rises to poetry, energy and vitality. For its perfect marriage of digital technology and social documentary, and for its scale, ambition, and poetry, ‘Tribu’ truly deserves to be declared Best Picture.” LITO ZULUETA, critic, poet, Cinemalaya 2007 juror”[TRIBU] had enormous power, if quite a raw one, literally and aesthetically, not unlike the Spike Lee movies about the underbelly of America. But at that, the world of ‘Tribu’ makes the ghettoes of New York look almost like a walk in the park, even Central Park.”
CONRADO DE QUIROS, columnist, Philippine Daily Inquirer
“[The] film speaks from the heart of someone who lived and breathed day in and day out in the infamous, poverty-stricken and violence-ridden [Tondo] district of Manila.”
