Exit through the gift shop: Banksy Film

Exit Through The Gift Shop is due to open in UK cinemas on 5 March. 

 


Banksy unmasked: Elusive street artist to appear on film for the first time… but will he reveal his true identity?
He has remained anonymous and elusive while becoming one of the most famous artists in the world.
And now graffiti artist Banksy has pulled off a movie project which shows him on film and speaking for the first time – but critics are divided on whether it gives any further clues to the man behind the stencils.
The street artist, who has never confirmed his identity, will premiere his film Exit Through The Gift Shop at the Sundance Film Festival on Sunday.
Narrated by British actor Rhys Ifans and billed as ‘the world’s first street art disaster movie’, its inclusion in the festival has been shrouded in secrecy.
It was left off the official programme and instead will be the festival’s Spotlight Surprise.
There has been speculation that the artist will finally reveal himself in the film as it is said to feature exclusive footage of him at work along with many of the world’s most famous graffiti artists.
But Banksy, who is known for teasing his audience and staging unexpected stunts, is more likely to create more questions than he answers.
He once told an interviewer: ‘I have no interest in ever coming out. I figure there are enough self-opinionated a**holes trying to get their ugly little faces in front of you as it is.’
