Events for the Next Seven Days
Wednesday, October 26, 20166:00:00 PM - Wisdom for Wellness Resiliency Series: The Wolfpack Documentary - Students will view an ABC 20/20 segment on this inspiring story following the six Angulo brothers who spent their lives locked away from society by their controlling father in an apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The one leisure their father did allow was complete access to movies. What they knew of the outside world was gleaned from the films they watched obsessively. They eventually recreate the movie scenes they love by meticulously writing down every word of each movie and using elaborate homemade props and costumes. For years this served as a productive way to stave off loneliness, but when one of the brothers finally escapes, everything changes. An amazing story of resiliency, courage, creativity and strength of the human spirit when faced with unimaginable circumstances. A short discussion will follow.
