ArtNews is reporting that Alex Israel’s teen surfing film, SPF-18 will have a Hollywood premiere on September 21. On September 29, it will have it exclusive release on iTunes. A month later it will be available on Netflix.
PM Trailers has posted the trailer on youtube.
We first heard about this project back in August 2016, when astrupfearnley posted a a photo of a handwritten note on instagram. I posted about it here. The note and the comment left in the comment said:
“Mi casa es su casa. Make this the best summer of your life. – Keanu”
This handwritten note by Keanu Reeves sets off the narrative of Alex Israel’s new movie SPF-18 that follows the lives of four 18-year-old friends who come of age and discover their creative voices one fateful surf-filled summer in Malibu, while housesitting for Keanu Reeves.
