Film and Discussion: Exit Through the Gift Shop
Wednesday, February 13 @ 7:00 pmFree
The Medford Film Collaborative presents the third installment of a new monthly series of thought-provoking films about art and artists with the showing of “Exit Through the Gift Shop.”
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. He fiercely guards his anonymity to avoid prosecution. An eccentric French shopkeeper turned documentary maker attempts to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn his back on the owner. Includes footage of Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Invader, and many of the world’s most infamous graffiti artists at work, on walls and in interview. As Banksy describes it, “It’s basically the story of how one man set out to film the un-filmable. And failed.”
The film series is being presented by the Medford Film Collaborative in partnership with Medford Arts Center, Inc.; Malden Creates; Coffee Shop Artists; Howe Creative Studio & Gallery; Sanctuary UCC Church; First Baptist Church of Medford; and Pinnacle Mortgage Corp.
