The Wolfpack Programme 2022

by Crystal Moselle Documentary Competition

At the very center of New York City, yet completely separated from society, members of the Angulo family live their lives almost exclusively confined to their apartment. The family’s seven children are seldom allowed to leave the ‘security’ of their living quarters, and then only under the strict supervision of their father, an old hippie who believes that the big city in which they live is not the right place for his children to grow up. The Angulo siblings learned almost everything they know about the outside world from films. The six brothers and their sister’s isolated lifestyle made them creative, they rustled up costumes and makeshift film sets and paraded as caped Batman or suited Reservoir Dogs to create their own (filmic) reality. However, the bravest of the group one day left the apartment without asking and turned the life of the whole family on its head. Filmmaker Crystal Moselle tentatively befriended the family, and accompanied the ‘Wolfpack’ on its road to freedom over five years.
