Exit Through The Gift Shop

What's it about?

Banksy is a graffiti artist with a global reputation. Fiercely guarding his anonymity to avoid prosecution, Banksy has so far resisted all attempts to be captured on film. This tells the incredible true story of how an eccentric documentary maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner.

Why do we love it?

​An inviting look into a notoriously secretive life, Exit Through The Gift Shop turns the traditional documentary style on its head as it quickly goes off the rails and takes unexpected turns in ways that only Banksy could make possible.

Rhys Ifans - Narrator
