SXSW: '12 O'Clock Boys' Poster Debuts (Exclusive)
Lotfy Nathan's doc will have its world premiere at the fest on March 10.
12 O'Clock Boys, a documentary from Lotfy Nathan, will have its world premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival on Sunday, March 10.
The film follows Pug, a 13-year-old boy growing up in West Baltimore who loves to hang out with The 12 O’Clock Boys, a gang of illegal dirt bike riders. Pug has a whole lot of personality, telling the filmmakers at one point, "I've been on this Earth for a decade and a couple years, so what that makes me -- I'm a grown ass man." (Watch the trailer below.)
The doc, which is Nathan's first film, will screen in the festival's Documentary Competition.
