Exit Through the Gift Shop @ Robinson Film Center: graffiti, Banksy and the world of street art being aired through Thurs, July 22
Exit Through the Gift Shop is "An amusing, engrossing look at underground art; Exit through the Gift Shop entertains as it deflates the myths and hype surrounding its subjects."
The movie is "The story of how an eccentric French shop keeper and amateur film maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner with spectacular results. Billed as 'the world's first street art disaster movie' the film contains exclusive footage of Banksy, Shephard Fairey, Invader and many of the world's most infamous graffiti artists at work."
