GoodCinema and CRUSH Walls present the award-winning documentary, Exit Through The Gift Shop, the story of how an eccentric French shop-keeper and amateur film-maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner. The infamous, shadowy British graffiti street artist Banksy has literally left his mark on cities throughout the world. He comes in contact with Thierry Guetta, a Los Angeles-based Frenchman who videotapes various underground art escapades, and later is transformed into an art phenomenon dubbed "Mr. Brainwash." Rhys Ifans narrates an overlapping documentary where the line between what is real and what might be fake blurs, as modern art and celebrity are put under the microscope. The film will be followed by an intimate discussion on art, expression, rules and commercialism with a panel of CRUSH street artists. Doors: 3:30pm | Film: 4pm | Discussion: 5:45pm
