Exit Through The Gift Shop

Posted in film by Kamera Guys on 29/09/2010

Exit Through the Gift Shop: A Banksy Film is a film which tells the story of Thierry Guetta, a French immigrant in Los Angeles, and his obsession with street art. It is presented as a documentary, but reviewers have questioned its factuality. The film charts Guetta’s constant documenting of his every moment on film, to his chance contact with his cousin, the artist Invader, and his documenting of a host of street artists with focus on Shepard Fairey, and also Banksy though the latter’s face is never shown, and his voice is distorted to preserve his anonymity. Banksy does in fact appear in the film as a passer by, commenting on his own work as a cameo performance. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on 24 January 2010.
