Oscilloscope Nabs SXSW Doc ’12 O’Clock Boys’

Doc follows urban dirt-bike pack

Oscilloscope Laboratories has nabbed all North American rights to Lotfy Nathan’s feature bow “12 O’Clock Boys” after its world preem in the SXSW film festival’s docu competish earlier this month.

The deal was negotiated by Oscilloscope’s Dan Berger and David Laub with ICM Partners and Marc H. Simon of Cowan DeBaets Abrahams & Sheppard on behalf of the filmmakers.

Doc follows three years in the life of a notorious urban dirt-bike pack in Baltimore through the eyes of a young adolescent boy who yearns to join their ranks.

The docu was shown as a work-in-progress at the Lincoln Center among others venues. Pic is slated to screen at Hot Docs, Full Frame and other fests this spring before its theatrical, DVD and digital release.

“Lotfy has introduced us to a world so compelling, so foreign, and so relatable all at once,” Berger said in a statement. “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 way of Cirque du Soleil. It’s seriously like nothing you’ve seen before.”
