Diaspora 101. What can the most successful doll on the planet show us about being Jewish today? Narrated by Peter Coyote, The Tribe combines old school narration with a new school visual style. The film skillfully 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.
