A hit at film festivals, synagogues, interfaith groups, community centers, bat mitzvahs, seders, even the US Navy ordered copies for each of their ships, “The Tribe” explores American Jewish Identity through the history of the Barbie doll. Narrated by Peter Coyote, the film mixes old school narration with a new school visual style. The film weaves together archival footage, graphics, animation, Barbie dioramas, and slam poetry to take audiences on an electric ride through the complex history of both the Barbie doll and the Jewish people - from Biblical times to present day. By tracing Barbie’s history, the film sheds light on the questions: What does it mean to be an American Jew today? What does it mean to be a member of any tribe in the 21st Century? This Sundance documentary and winner of 16 awards is a great trigger for discussion about American Jewish Identity in the 21st Century.
