We announced last month that Oscilloscope Laboratories will release Lotfy Nathan’s documentary 12
O’Clock Boys in theaters and across all digital and VOD platforms on January 31.
Now we have more info about the film’s theatrical premiere.
The film will open in New York at the Angelika
and Empire 25 cinemas on Jan. 31st, and in other cities including Los Angeles, Baltimore,
San Francisco, Miami, Seattle, Austin, Columbus, Portland, Denver and New Orleans.
It will premiere across all digital and VOD platforms on the same date.
Here’s the synopsis for a film which has been called “exhilarating…and beautifully executed“:
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.
