On march the fifth, Banksy will be with you! As BBC wrote today, a brilliant street art film will come to the cinemas in Great Britain. It’s a film about a world without rules, where one man broke them all. It’s a Banksy film! It’s called Exit Through The Gift Shop.
The film is billed as the world’s first street art disaster movie. For this reason, it looks like a film of a man who wanted to film Banksy but failed. Nevertheless there are a lot of famous urban artists, like Shepard Fairey, in the movie. I’m very curious to see the film. Here is a excerpt of the BBC’s article:
Notorious street artist Banksy, whose work has decorated his home town of Bristol and Israel’s West Bank barrier, has turned his hand to film-making. Exit Through The Gift Shop was left off the official program, but speculation about the festival’s Spotlight Surprise turned to Banksy after four stencils, believed to be by the artist, appeared on walls in Park City, where the festival is held.
Banksy is known for teasing his audience, toying with authority, and continually pulling the wool over people’s eyes to stage unexpected stunts. Last year, he installed 100 of his artworks in Bristol’s council-owned museum under the noses of top officials, and once smuggled a blow-up figure of a Guantanamo Bay detainee into Disneyland.
Exit Through The Gift Shop will have its world premiere at the festival on Sunday.
