Twelve Tribes Project


In summer 2015, Manuel - a student of Social and Cultural Anthropology at Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main - did a field research in a community of the religious movement "Twelve Tribes", commonly known as a brutal and dangerous cult.

His aim was to examine the relation between this special "self-established" culture and the religious characteristics of the group. For that he lived about eight weeks in one of their communes, in a remote town at the foot of the Catskill Mountains in the state of New York/USA.

He documented his stay with a video camera. The resulting footage was cut short into the film "Twelve Tribes Project". This production is a document of dread - a shocking insight into a world of violence, deep in the heart of evil (just kidding
