This week on The Main Course, Alexes and Phil are joined in the studio by Govinda Angulo, one of the subjects of the 2015 documentary film The Wolfpack. The film is about a family who homeschooled and raised their seven children in the confinement of their apartment in the Lower East Side of New York City. Locked away for fourteen years, the Angulo family’s seven children—six brothers named Mukunda, Narayana, Govinda, Bhagavan, Krisna (Glenn), and Jagadesh (Eddie), and their sister Visnu—learned about the world through watching films. They also re-enacted scenes from their favorite movies.
“I think we’ve learned right now to let go a little bit of our preconceptions, and just explore the human psychology part of everybody. People are people.” [12:45] – Govinda Angulo
