Trailer Park: SXSW Film Day 8

Three picks (and clips) from today's screenings

You've seen it all by now, right? No way. Much like Burt Wonderstone, South by Southwest always has one more trick up its sleeve. You can plan your final SXSW weekend – and, in fact, here are a few trailers for the day's films to help you along – but don't forget to be open to life's twists and turns.

This is … the Trailer Park.

12 O'Clock Boys

Documentary Feature Competition, World Premiere
Friday, March 15, 11:15am, Stateside

A punchy young teen looks to join Baltimore's notorious dirt bike gang. Police and the gang go head-to-head in one of the most dangerous cities in the U.S.

Good Night

Narrative Spotlight, World Premiere
Friday, March 15, 1:30pm, Topfer

Leigh interrupts her own 29th birthday party with some disconcerting news, and the night had only just begun. A tight ensemble cast, which includes three directors, makes this Austin film what it is.

The Great Hip Hop Hoax

24 Beats Per Second, World Premiere
Friday, March 15, 9:45pm, Alamo Ritz

Silibil N' Brains wanted to make it big in the hip-hop scene, and they didn't care if they had to tell a few lies along the way – or create entirely new identities. The Scottish/Californian duo of Billy Boyd and Gavin Bain talk about the monster of lies within lies they created in the name of fame.
