Won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance 2015.
Six bright teenage brothers have spent their entire lives locked away from society. All they know of the outside is gleaned from the movies they watch obsessively, and recreate meticulously. Nicknamed 'The Wolfpack’, the brothers spend their childhood re-enacting their favourite films using elaborate homemade props and costumes. With no friends and living on welfare, they feed their curiosity, creativity, and imagination with film. But when one of the brothers ventures outside, it sparks a fire in the Wolfpack to follow suit. Can they integrate into society and still maintain their close-knit brotherhood?
Combined with unprecedented access into The Wolfpack’s world, and their vast archive of homemade movies, director Crystal Moselle crafts a captivating portrait of an extraordinary family. By fully immersing herself into their world, she is able to delve into the true nature of identity and creativity, by telling letting their remarkable story to naturally unfold on camera, without judgement.
