NY Debut of "Twelve O'Clock Boys"
First screened at the SXSW Film Festival this year with critical acclaim, and included in IonCinema's The 16 Must See Documentaries of 2013 this controversial film about Baltimore’s most notorious dirt-bike group features police chases, striking high-speed camera footage and stark insights into this inner-city biker subculture.
To citizens and police they are dangerous hooligans, and the stunting and mayhem claim a dozen fatalities a year. Seen through the eyes of 13-year-old aspiring member Pug, they are two-wheeled ghetto knights who represent freedom and defiance.
BEnt contributed to its Kickstarter campaign. And no matter what your take is on stunter gangs, if you're a biker this film should not to be missed.
"[Twelve O'Clock features] dramatic footage of Pug’s daredevil heroes, their pack riding style echoing Old West cowboy iconography. Synthesized hip-hop music with boys-choir accents elevates the lifestyle further"
