A documentary taking us inside the world of street art and what happens when fame, money and vandalism collide. The film follows shop-keeper French immigrant Thierry Guetta, as he tries to capture one of the world’s most prolific graffiti artists on video. But when the famous graffiti artists, Banksy and Shepard Fairey turn the camera back onto the amateur film-maker, things don’t go as expected.
Banksy is a street 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. As artist Banksy describes it, It’s basically the story of how one man set out to film the unfilmable. And failed.
