Deadline released a new trailer for the documentary, “12 O’Clock Boys,” which follows, Pug, a thirteen-year-old boy, whose mission is to join the most notorious dirt-bike gang in Baltimore, the 12 O’Clock Boys. Initially, this film came into light by Kickstarter, (which you can read more about that here) and premiered at this year’s SXSW and did very well.
I’m a sucker for documentaries and this film seems right up my alley. Check out the trailer below and film synopsis after the jump:
“Pug, a thirteen year old boy living on a dangerous Westside block, has one goal in mind: to join the 12 O’Clock Boys; the notorious urban dirt-bike gang of Baltimore. Converging from all parts of the inner city, they invade the streets and clash with police, who are forbidden to chase the bikes for fear of endangering the public. Pug looks to the pack for mentorship, spurred by their dangerous lifestyle. He narrates their world as if explaining a dreamscape, complemented with unprecedented, action-packed coverage of the riders in their element, guided by the riders themselves as they take to the streets and clash with Police. The film presents the pivotal years of change in a boy’s life growing up in one of the most dangerous and economically depressed cities in the United States.”
“12 O’Clock Boys,” which is directed by Lotfy Nathan, hits theaters early 2014.
