The incredible true story of how the greatest graffiti movie of all time was never made... EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP is a chaotic trip through low-level criminality, comradeship and incompetence. By turns shocking, hilarious and absurd, this is an enthralling modern-day fairytale... with bolt cutters. This is the inside story of Street Art -- a brutal and revealing account of what happens when fame, money, and vandalism collide. EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP follows an eccentric shopkeeper turned amateur filmmaker as he attempts to capture many of the world's most infamous vandals on camera, only to have famed British stencil artist Banksy turn the camcorder back on its owner in one of the most provocative films about art ever made.
Nominated: Best Documentary, 2011 Independent Spirit Awards; Best Documentary, 2010 British Independent Film Awards
