An inside story of Street Art - a brutal and revealing account of what happens when fame, money and vandalism collide.

Exit Through the Gift Shop: A Banksy Film follows an eccentric shop-keeper turned amateur film-maker as he attempts to capture many of the world's most infamous vandals on camera, only to have a British stencil artist named Banksy turn the camcorder back on its owner with wildly unexpected results.

A fascinating study of low-level criminality, comradeship and incompetence. By turns shocking, hilarious and absurd, this is an enthralling modern-day fairytale... with bolt cutters.

UK, 2010, Colour, 86 min.
Dir. Banksy
