Banksy Documentary - Exit Through the Gift Shop (watch the first 5 minutes!)

Much earlier this year, we geeked out over the trailer for the upcoming Banksy documentary, Exit Through the Gift Shop. Now, with a full 5 minutes of the beginning of this months release, we have every right and rad reason to keep on grinning.




While the project was being touted as a feature film by street artist Banksy, the film actually has no credited director. The film starts out as a documentary by a video camera-obsessed Frenchman named Thierry Guetta. With a love for street art, and connections into the scene, Thierry sets out to capture the most elusive street artist...Banksy.


Naturally, the film becomes something much different, and far more elaborate. Screenings in NYC begin on April 16 at the Sunshine Theater and Lincoln Plaza.


Watch the first 5 minutes below.

Banksy Documentary - Exit Through the Gift Shop

Blur and Paris Hilton have both been treated to the "Banksy touch", but long before either of those, erm, "musicians", felt his effect, the legendary street artist was defying laws and legals systems in an effort to have his works be seen and be shocking.


Exit Through the Gift Shop is a documentary about Banksy, whose title references a specific work in relation to one of the British street artist’s notorious break-ins to museums. While Banksy's stencils feature striking and humorous images occasionally combined with anti-war, anti-capitalist or anti-establishment slogans, the feature intends to look at his entire repertoire in a humorously anonymous light.


The film’s premiere is at Sundance, prefaced with the following on it's official site. In the late 1990s, a hybrid form of graffiti began appearing in cities around the world. Enlisting stickers, stencils, posters, and sculpture and spread by the burgeoning Internet, it would be labeled “street art” and establish itself as the most significant counterculture movement of a generation. Los Angeles–based filmmaker Terry Guetta set out to record this secretive world in all its thrilling detail. For more than eight years, he traveled with the pack, roaming the streets of America and Europe, the stealthy witness of the world’s most infamous vandals. But after meeting the British stencil artist known only as “Banksy,” things took a bizarre turn. Sundance has shown films by unknown artists but never an anonymous one. Banksy turns the tables on the only man who has ever filmed him, creating a remarkable documentary that is part personal journey and part an exposé of the art world with its mind-altering mix of hot air and hype. In the end, Exit Through the Gift Shop is an amazing ride, a cautionary modern fairy tale . . . with bolt cutters.
