EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP

Directed by Banksy
United States, United Kingdom, 2010

Synopsis

Globally renowned graffiti artist Banksy fiercely guards his anonymity to avoid prosecution. The line between what is real and what might be fake begins to blur when a kooky French shop keeper attempts to film Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner.

Our take

Hilarious, zeitgeist-y, strange and surprising, this quasi-documentary directed by the anonymous activist Banksy profiles his fan & fellow street artist Thierry Guetta, challenging our expectations at every turn. Nominated for an Academy Award® in 2011.
