Brothers locked away from society find a window to the outside through their love of film


THE FILMS

The Wolfpack (Crystal Moselle | USA | 89 min.)
Despite growing up on the Lower East Side, the 6 Angulo brothers know little of New York City or the outside world. They have no acquaintances outside their family and are rarely permitted to leave their home. Much of what they know of the world was gleaned from the films they watch obsessively and recreate meticulously, using elaborate homemade props and costumes. When one of the brothers ventures out for the first time (wearing a Michael Meyers mask), the power dynamics in the house are transformed, and his brothers are soon to follow. With incredible access into the subjects' world and vast archive of home movies, director Crystal Moselle has crafted a fascinating coming of age story, charting an extraordinary family whose lives are a true example of the transformative power of movies. –D.D.

The Wolfpack opens in theaters June 12th, 2015

MUSIC

Nicholas Nicholas
Nicholas Nicholas is the hazy dark-pop project of Brooklyn's Chris Masullo and friends. Masullo self released his home recorded debut Comfort Falls in 2013-- a "vaporware take on a John Hughes film" according to Portals. Sophomore effort Wrong was released on cassette via Miscreant Records in August of 2014, recognized by FADER as "a triumph of morning dew and melodrama" The third Nicholas Nicholas release will arrive in late 2015.
