Director Statement

I was always intrigued by the idea of having a small tangible world with a really grand concept- my team and I were able to make it come alive for The Tribe. Merging these two elements together to create something visually familiar but chillingly strange. The idea of seeing what human beings would do to each other, with the best of intentions, is such an interesting psychosocial study I was able to play with in this semi-fictional realm... where this reality has a chance of actually happening in the near future.

I really hope that this film appeals to both a commercial and independent audience, that it challenges the audience to think deeper about how us as human beings can change the course of nature and how we make ourselves both the destroyer and savior of our destinies.
