Banksy’s Exit Through The Gift Shop (exclusive 5 min extended sneak peek)

In posse on 2010/04/07 at 9:53 am

There’s been a lot of talk about this Banksy movie making it to a theatrical release, and finally people are going to get their chance to see a story about one of the most notorious street art players in this whole wide world. Framed as a movie about the guy making a movie about Banksy, the fun only starts there as the absurd and insane ensues.

Exit Through the Gift Shop, the first film by renowned graffiti artist Banksy, became the hottest ticket at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival where it made its world debut. Banksy is a graffiti artist with a global reputation whose work can be seen on walls from post—hurricane New Orleans to the separation barrier on the Palestinian West Bank. Fiercely guarding his anonymity to avoid prosecution, Banksy has so far resisted all attempts to be captured on film. Exit Through the Gift Shop tells the incredible true story of how an eccentric French shop keeper turned documentary maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner with spectacular results. The film contains exclusive footage of Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Invader and many of the worlds most infamous graffiti artists at work, on walls and in interview. As Banksy describes it, Its basically the story of how one man set out to film the un—filmable. And failed.
