Earlier this year, Oscilloscope Laboratories picked up all North American rights to Lotfy Nathan’s debut feature, 12 O'Clock Boys, which world premiered earlier this year at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, TX.  


Here's the synopsis:

The 12 O'CLOCK BOYS are a notorious urban dirt bike pack in Baltimore -- popping wheelies and weaving at excessive speeds through traffic, the group impressively evades the hamstrung police. In Lotfy Nathan's wild, dynamic documentary (three years in the making), their stunning antics are envisioned through the eyes of young adolescent Pug - a bright kid from the Westside obsessed with the riders and willing to do anything to join their ranks. Premiering to critical acclaim at the SXSW and Hot Docs Film Festivals (where Nathan won the HBO Emerging Artist Award), 12 O'CLOCK BOYS provides a compelling and intimate personal story of a young boy and his dangerous, thrilling dream.

Oscilloscope will release the film in early 2014, after a film festival rollout since its SXSW debut. 

Dan Berger of Oscilloscope said, “In 12 O’CLOCK, Lotfy has introduced us to a world so compelling, so foreign, and so relatable all at once. It’s a portrait of a subculture as much as a window into the state of America, and it’s all in the guise of THE WIRE by way of CIRQUE DU SOLEIL.  It’s seriously like nothing you’ve seen before.

Filmmaker Lotfy Nathan said, “Oscilloscope's great. I really hope they don't f*&k this up."

Hah! How's that for a press statement?

Oscilloscope has released a brand-new trailer for the film, which you can watch below:
