Watch “Mirror Heart,” from the Angulo Brothers, a whimsical mix of live-action and stop-motion animation. Starring, of course, members of their own family, this is part of Vice Media’s trans-media support for the film, which is directed by Crystal Moselle. (Watch the brothers’ De Niro-impersonating short here.)
Emotional and claustrophobic, “The Wolfpack,” now in theaters, follows the Angulo Brothers, who spent their childhood crammed in a New York Housing Authority apartment under the lock and key of their tyrannical, paranoid father. It’s also an inquiry into how we’re defined by the media we consume–the six brothers recount being raised on thousands of movies, which became their only way to understand the outside world.
