CRYSTAL + THE WOLFPACK
Meet Crystal Moselle, the director behind one of the summer’s most hotly-anticipated films, The Wolfpack.
The Angulo brothers were not allowed to leave the house. However, they were allowed to watch movies. So they watched a lot of movies. They reenacted movies. Their father, Mr. Angulo was a megalomaniac and also a bit of a drunk who kept his family locked in their New York City apartment.
The first time the brothers left their house without their parents, they happened to catch the eye of a documentary film director named Crystal Moselle.
“I spotted them weaving in and out of the crowds on First Avenue,” Moselle told Dazed. “I was so captivated by the way they looked that I just ran after them.”
The resulting film, Moselle’s first feature, was five years in the making, and watches the brothers transform from sheltered cinephiles into explorers of the world.
In select theaters August 5.
