12 Horas (in English, 12 Hours) is a 2001 Puerto Rican movie. It was written and directed by Raúl Marchand Sánchez, and marked both his screenwriting and directorial debut. The movie follows the lives of several characters during the course of a night in Santurce, Puerto Rico (hence the title referring to the time from dusk to dawn). It had a six-week run in cinemas in Puerto Rico. Its profanity and sexual content were a definite deviation from the norm as far as the usual content of Puerto Rican films done up to that time.
