幫派Tribu (95分鐘)
(Jim Libiran / Philippines / 2008)
記者Jim Libiran為了他的第一部電影,走訪馬尼拉最危險的貧民窟,雇用這些青少年幫派分子在這部關於貧民窟幫派鬥爭的電影中演出。過程中他竟然真的讓這些部落幫派休戰,寫下了一個勇敢的故事。

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.
