Exit through the gift shop Banksy 2010, 1’27”, English

This film tells the story of an eccentric French shopkeeper who spent time and energy trying to locate Banksy, the infamously mysterious but equally popular, English street artist, whose work usually gets discovered in the morning, suddenly, on the walls of a new city. From the wall of separation in Palestine, to post-hurricane New Orleans, Banksy’s reputation as a satirical and subversive artist is reaching a wider audience from around the globe.
