New York based director Crystal Moselle is a storyteller of both documentary and fiction films. She is best known for her Sundance, Grand Jury Prize award winning documentary, “The Wolfpack” which was later distributed by Magnolia Pictures. Crystal discovered the Angulo brothers who were the subjects of the documentary on the streets of New York. In the past she worked on short form projects with publications such as The New York Times, Vice and Nowness. After the success of “The Wolfpack,” she met a group of female skateboarders on the train, who would become her main collaborators and subjects on three projects. The first was a narrative short “That One Day,” which she produced in collaboration with Miu Miu and saw its premiere at the 73rd Venice International Film Festival. Shortly after that they expanded the film into a feature, which Crystal co-wrote and directed named after the infamous group “Skate Kitchen”, which premiered at Sundance 2018 and was later distributed by Magnolia to critical acclaim. In the same year, Crystal was nominated for the Breakthrough Director Award at the Gotham Awards for her direction of the film. The third collaboration is the recent HBO series “Betty,” which debuted to critical acclaim.
