I stumbled upon the trailer to this Sundance Jury Film the beginning of last year, and I became obsessed.
6 brothers shut up from the rest of their world living in a small Manhattan apartment controlled by their father! The brothers cope with being inside by playing and imagining the outside world, by creating new films!
...what is not interesting about that?
If you haven’t see the trailer yet, you should take a look at it.
And with their new NY Times piece follow-up, it’s really interesting to see the boys progress and change. They have jobs, new friends, and two even changed their names. They’ve also become mini celebrities in the documentary world.
Film really shaped their outside world when they had none. And now it’s changing their lives.
