The film is next slated to screen at the Hot Docs and Full Frame Documentary festivals. O-Scope have yet to announce a release date.

Three years in the making, “12 O’Clock Boys” documents one boy’s journey to join the notorious Baltimore dirt bike pack of the title.

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 the way of Cirque Du Soleil. It’s seriously like nothing you’ve seen before.”

“Oscilloscope’s great. I really hope they don’t fuck this up,” Nathan added.
