Part of Film series Screen Epiphanies
Directed by Banksy | 2010

This monthly series brings a prominent artistic or cultural figure to BAM to discuss the film that inspired their passion for cinema, followed by a screening of the film.

Street art provocateur Banksy brought his expectation-defying brand of merry pranksterism to the screen with this stranger-than-fiction documentary in which the famously elusive artist turns the tables—and the camera—on a graffiti-obsessed Frenchman attempting to make his own movie about the LA street art scene. A hilarious and subversive exposé of art world hype and authenticity, Exit Through the Gift Shop is either an incredible wild ride or the greatest stunt ever pulled.

Inspired by the Screen Epiphanies series at London's BFI Southbank
