Directed by the notorious Banksy himself, Exit Through the Gift Shop takes viewers on a wild ride through the illicit world of street art.
An exhilarating look behind the scenes of the movement, Exit follows the transformation of French shopkeeper Thierry Guetta — who’s obsessed with documenting street art, but unable to make a good film — into Mr. Brainwash, a megalomaniacal artist set on conquering the graffiti-art scene. Narrated by Rhys Ifans, the film also features music by Roni Size and Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, soundtracking fantastic footage of Banksy, Shepard Fairey, and other street-art heroes.
