The Wolfpack
Director:Crystal Moselle
Cert:15 Year: 2015 Length:90mins
Country:USA
An over-protective father locks his seven children in their New York apartment in order to prevent them experiencing the dangers of life outside. Film becomes their window on the world and gorging on all-night sessions of VHS, the brothers turned their prison-like conditions into a site of creativity and play.

A chance meeting with a filmmaker on a rare trip outside the apartment led to the making of this extraordinary documentary, re-enacting scenes from their favourite films - homemade costumes and all - and seeing the interaction between the brothers and their strange patriarch.

Critics

“The Wolfpack walks a perilous line in documentary ethics, but there's no question it is one of the most confronting and confounding true stories in a long time.”
