WheretoInvadeNext

In “Where to Invade Next” Michael Moore sets out to tell his fellow Americans what most of us already suspect: America is not the middle class paradise that Americans are led to believe.

Winning the Sundance Grand Jury Best Documentary Prize for 2015 “The Wolfpack” is an extraordinary coming of age story that highlights the powerful influence of film. As children, the Angulos brothers were confined to their parents’ apartment in the Lower East Side of New York under the rule of their strict Peruvian father who disapproved of outside influence on his family. Sheltered from society, the boys learned about life from their father’s collection of films.
