Director Crystal Moselle is sitting in the conference room at the roomy, exposed-brick office of Magnolia Films in Chelsea. Pointing at a pile of half-empty take-out containers on a side table, she asks for them not to be thrown out because “I’m sure the boys will want to take the food home.” It’s a gesture that reveals the closeness between Moselle and the Angulo brothers, the subjects of her remarkable debut documentary The Wolfpack. The brothers (who are in the office that day for press photographs) didn’t get to finish their food—but Moselle has their backs.

The story of a hyper-isolated family in one of the world’s most populous cities, The Wolfpack is the result of a chance encounter. In 2010, Moselle was standing on First Avenue in New York’s East Village when a teenage boy ran past her, his long black hair billowing behind him. He was followed by five more boys, all with streaming black hair, and Moselle’s instincts kicked in: she chased after them and asked where they were from. When the boys heard she was a filmmaker, they were thrilled—they wanted to get into filmmaking too, they said.

So began a friendship that, as it progressed, allowed Moselle to uncover the boys’ strange story. Raised on the Lower East Side, the six of them and their mentally disabled sister were kept under lock and key by their father, Oscar, a Peruvian drifter who regarded himself as the god of his own tribe, and who gave the children Sanskrit names like Bhagavan, Govinda, Mukunda, and Krishna.

post 2 Nils Frahms Saysnils head new Nils Frahms Says
Although the following music video is about a year old, we wanted to present it in this format because it’s an exceptional work, even sublime in its innovative simplicity. Created by experimental visual creators Romain Assenat and Ana Silva for Nils Frahm’s composition, Says, which itself is a masterpiece of contemporary musical exploration, the video applies a method of video feedback to create a unique visual experience of beats and musical punctuation. In our age of digital manipulation of everything, it’s remarkable to learn that this was created in a largely analog process, in a single take, which Romain and Ana share with PLANET in the following interview.

For starters, can you tell us a bit about yourselves, where you live, what you do, and how you came to direct the Nils Frahm video for Says?


We are a French-Portuguese couple living in Brussels for several years, and we love experimental music and arts. I work in the social field with young people and Romain has made me discover the experimental music world and, more specifically, Nils’ work in 2010.
