The Tribe: Pavel Prokopchik

The Tribe follows alternative lifestyles of young Russians to realms far away from the politics and materialism of the national culture. Prokopchik, writing on his ongoing project:

It’s a story about freethinking people that willingly deny the comfortable lifestyle and life oriented at possession of things, particularly in a country that is caught up in between strictly controlled society and capitalism. Some of them turn to sale of illegal substances to support their lifestyle and evade a 9 to 5 office job, which doesn’t pay much anyway. Some keep their work and their life separately and refuse promotion not to get too involved in a corporate world. They are not the hippies of the 60’s, nor are they the beatniks, even though some of them inherited the relentless sprit of Dean Moriarty from Kerouac’s ‘On the Road’. It’s a new generation that is still in search for the escape from the grips of our society.
