12 O’Clock Boys

While this film is premiering at SXSW 2013 Film Festival, it could still use some help via kickstarter.

“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.”

The Legend of Cool “Disco” Dan

DC History right here. Narrated by Henry Rollins, and premiering February 23rd at the AFI Silver Theater located in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Discover the “other” Washington of the 1980s through the story of legendary graffiti artist Cool “Disco” Dan, a mysterious, ubiquitous presence during the height of go-go music, record crime rates and city-wide dysfunction. Few people knew every block of the city like Dan, and as intrigue about his identity grew, his illegal scrawl became a unifying force for a city on the verge of chaos. Narrated by DC native Henry Rollins and featuring interviews with “Mayor for Life” Marion Barry, civil rights activist Rev. Walter Fauntroy, punk rock historian and activist Mark Andersen and musicians Chuck Brown and Ian MacKaye, this documentary from filmmakers Joseph Pattisall and Roger Gastman (producer, EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP) tells a fascinating chapter of DC history.

DIR Joseph Pattisall; PROD Roger Gastman. US, 2012, color and b&w, 90 min. NOT RATED

Bill Plympton’s CHEATIN’

Bill Plympton’s 7th animated film just got its bare bones funding on kickstarter, but needs some more help to really get it going. The legendary independent animator does all the drawings himself, with this one totaling over 40,000—each needing to be colored and cleaned. If all goes well, CHEATIN’ will be ready by September, “just in time to qualify for the Oscars!”
