Exit Through the Gift Shop image.jpg

A 5 minute clip from Exit Through the Gift Shop, the first film by graffiti artist Banksy, has been released.  You may not be familiar with the name Banksy, but you’ve almost certainly seen pictures of his street art before.  His style – which is based mostly on creating graffiti through the use of stencils – is very distinctive, provocative and often beautiful.

Exit Through the Gift Shop is a documentary about a video-obsessed Frenchman named Thierry Guetta with a love for street art who tried to make a film about the secretive Banksy.  Bansky, however found Guetta to be more fascinating than himself and turned the cameras around on the would-be filmmaker.

The resulting movie – which has no credited director – debuted at the Sundance Film Festival this year.  It is narrated by Rhys Ifans.  You can watch the five-minute clip after the jump.

Steve saw this movie at Sundance this year and loved it!  You can click here to see what he had to say about it at the time.
