FLick Affairs

the wolfpack

Winner of Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, this critically acclaimed documentary follows the Angulo brothers who were locked away from society in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and discovered about the outside world through the films that they watch. Nicknamed the Wolfpack, the brothers spend their childhood re-enacting their favorite films using elaborate homemade props and costumes.

For years this has served as a productive creative outlet and a way to stave off loneliness—things drastically change after one of the brothers escapes the apartment, wearing a Michael Meyers mask for protection. The celebrated doc is directed by Crystal Moselle and opens in the US on June 12th, 2015.
