Modern Tribalism

2001 NR

Journey into America's primitive soul in this documentary about the growing popularity of tribal behavior in mainstream society. Here, you'll get a look at the resurgence of humanity's oldest and most intense rituals -- from garden-variety tattooing to frenzied effigy-burning festivals to the disturbing extremes of body piercing. Modern Tribalism explores the cultural context surrounding this underground movement.
