Next Feature – The Wolfpack – 8pm, Monday 4th July

Locked away in an apartment in the Lower East Side of Manhattan for fourteen years, the Angulo family’s seven children – six brothers named Mukunda, Narayana, Govinda, Bhagavan, Krisna (Glenn), Jagadesh (Eddie), and their sister Visnu – learned about the world through watching films. They also re-enact scenes from their favourite movies. They were homeschooled by their mother and confined to their sixteenth storey four-bedroom apartment in the Seward Park Extension housing project. Their father, Oscar, had the only door key and prohibited the kids and their mother Susanne from leaving the apartment except for a few strictly-monitored trips on the “nefarious” streets

The film, directed by Crystal Moselle, premiered on January 25, 2015 at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won the U.S. Documentary Grand Jury Prize.
