Program Notes

Tyler joins his friend on a trip to the Catskills for a weekend birthday party with several people he doesn’t know. As soon as they get there, it’s clear that (1) he’s the only black guy, and (2) it’s going to be a weekend of heavy drinking. Although Tyler is welcomed, he can’t help but feel uneasy around a close-knit group of white guys. The combination of all the testosterone and alcohol starts to get out of hand, and Tyler’s precarious situation starts to feel like a nightmare.

With writer/director Sebastián Silva’s signature handheld style probing subtext and body language, Tyrel conjures an undeniable underlying tension and it marks his most radical character exploration yet — a timely, provocative, and brilliant observation of the idea of otherness in today’s American climate.


“Aided to a large degree by a first-rate Jason Mitchell performance that enriches the movie’s topical themes.”
— Eric Kohn, IndieWire

Tyrel‘s refusal to leave the bounds of realism lends it a unique intrigue and unpredictability.”
— Ivana Brehas, 4:3

“This is a fast and lean film, an absolute workout for its outstanding cast and a devilish roller coaster ride for audiences.”
— Jordan Hoffman, Vanity Fair
