Tribu 幫派 (95分鐘)
(Jim Libiran / Philippines / 2008)
For his first feature film, journalist Jim Libiran went into the most dangerous slum in Manila, and recruited real teenage gangsters to act in his film about the slum’s gang wars. The gangs model themselves on US hip hop stars, and view freestyle rapping as a way of life. By using real members of rival gangs as actors in the film, director Libiran both created an extreme sense of realism and brought about an even more real truce between the gangs.
