Exit Through The Gift Shop

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

This is definitely a movie that I want to see, odds are I will catch it when Netflix picks it up because it is only opening in select cities. I love graffiti art, whether its free hand, stencil, abstract, modern, doesn’t mater I love it all. I learned a little bit about Banksy when I was taking a photography class last semester. I dig his work not only for the art but also the message his art leaves for “The Man” and the humor.
