Film At 11: Surfer Blood

Formerly known as Jabroni Sandwich (and what a kickass name that was!), MAGNET faves Surfer Blood just released a video for “Point Of No Return.” A father drives his son around stereotypical suburbia, but the boy transforms reality into a world of his own. Cutting out submarines, cat heads and astronaut helmets, he alters what is real to what his adolescent mind wished it would be. Check out the clip below.
