Director: M. Bevin O'Gara  With: Joey Caverly*, Karl Gregory*, Adrianne Krstansky*, Dean Robinson*

Billy, born deaf into a fast-talking, academic family, was never taught sign language. Pushed by his parents to assimilate into the hearing world by reading lips, he has spent most of his life flying under the radar. But when a young woman introduces him to the Deaf community, Billy decides it is time his family learns to communicate with him on his terms. Told in spoken English and sign language, Tribes explores the danger of not listening—and what it means to be truly heard.
