Voici les 5 premières minutes du film de Banksy : Exit Through the Gift Shop. J’ai vraiment hâte de le voir.

First 5 minutes of  Banksy’s movie, Exit Through the Gift Shop. I can’t wait to watch it !

Synopsis :

Exit Through the Gift Shop, the first film by renowned graffiti artist Banksy, became the hottest ticket at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival where it made its world debut. Banksy is a graffiti artist with a global reputation whose work can be seen on walls from post—hurricane New Orleans to the separation barrier on the Palestinian West Bank. Fiercely guarding his anonymity to avoid prosecution, Banksy has so far resisted all attempts to be captured on film. Exit Through the Gift Shop tells the incredible true story of how an eccentric French shop keeper [Thierry Guetta] turned documentary maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner with spectacular results. The film contains exclusive footage of Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Invader and many of the worlds most infamous graffiti artists at work, on walls and in interview. As Banksy describes it, Its basically the story of how one man set out to film the un—filmable. And failed

The World First Street Art Disaster Movie

Banksy, l’artiste anglais qui sévit  sur les murs des villes, va sortir un film documentaire sur le Street Art. Et comme d’habitude, le ton est délibérément provocateur et malin. Plusieurs artistes ont accepté d’être filmé. Tout ce qu’on a pour l’instant, c’est cette bande-annonce et la date de sortie : le 5 mars 2010. Il sera présenté en avant-première au festival de Sundance. N’espérez pas voir son visage, puisque dans cette bande-annonce, le seul moment où un visage est flouté, c’est quand on le voit en train de peindre un de ses rats. [BanksyFilm]

Au fait, le titre de son film « Exit Through The Gift Shop » est une référence à une de ses oeuvres :

Try looking  for Banksy on the Internet, and as in Terry Gilliam’s movie Lost in La Mancha, you’ll never get close to the man. It sucks, but that’s life. So instead of telling you who is Banksy or write stuff like « Banksy is great, Banksy is a genius », I’ll just say something i’m sure : Banksy doesn’t want you to know who he is. Today, the only little thing we know about the guy  is through his pieces of art. That is quite odd in itself as you certainly know most artists want you to know them more than their production. We are living in a world where we have to know the artist before knowing his work. We have to appreciate the artist to appreciate the work. Here, we only have the work and no artist.  Is Banksy a woman ? Is (s)he alone ? Is Banksy the name for a collective ? Can a (wo)man alone be as creative as him (her) ? Who cares ?
