EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP: A BANKSY FILM



Woh, old news to some, but God damn, this sounds interesting. Exit Through the Gift Shop (awesome name, by the way) is a new street art documentary focusing, mainly, on legendary UK street vigilante Banksy (well, kind of). Started as a work of love by Mr. Brainwash (aka Thierry Guetta), a French immigrant living in LA, the film took on a life of its own when Banksy got involved, finding its way to the Sundance Film Festival this January. But the interesting dynamic is, through the film, dabbling film-maker Guetta takes up street art and Banksy tries his hand at film-making. Naturally, Banksy's face is never shown and his voice has been distorted to protect his anonymity. Exit through the Gift Shop is premiering all through America this April and May.
