Video: Exit Through The Gift Shop (Trailer)

Here’s an extended trailer for Exit Through The Gift Shop, the upcoming documentary from filmmaker  Terry Guetta about notoriously reclusive street artist Banksy.

Exit Through the Gift Shop, the first film by renowned graffiti artist Banksy, became the hottest ticket at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival where it made its world debut. 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. Fiercely guarding his anonymity to avoid prosecution, Banksy has so far resisted all attempts to be captured on film. Exit Through the Gift Shop tells the incredible true story of how an eccentric French shop keeper turned documentary maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner with spectacular results. The film contains exclusive footage of Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Invader and many of the worlds most infamous graffiti artists at work, on walls and in interview. As Banksy describes it, Its basically the story of how one man set out to film the un—filmable. And failed.

Bombing footage like that in the beginning of this clip always makes me want to come out of retirement. Exit Through The Gift Shop opens in theaters April 16th.

  2. Beezy Says:

    peedi was famous entirely for saying shit like:

    “make the mack go rrrring”

    “make the mack go ting”

    “peedi peedi when you see me take it easy”

  3. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    I think you have to give Pun extra points for trailblazing, though.

  4. Beezy Says:

    i liked his verse on flip sides tho…

    “tell that hoe tootsie roll on the poll…”

  5. Beezy Says:

  7. hl Says:

  8. Beezy Says:

    Fall back, get your act Intact P MP

  12. landlord Says:

    word Beezy..

    Peedi’s flow is sometimes sickly… thats why i dig his music…

    Flipside is a perfect example…

  13. Black Says:

    Pun is a better MC but Joe’s contribution to Hip Hop is greater by leaps n bounds.

  14. landlord Says:

    “Que tu quieres mujeres, said she blow la-la
    FLIPSIDE – and she my baby mama”

    … cmon son.. whats fuckin with that? …

  15. Remixznflow Says:

    joel ortiz > peedi…

    its not even close…

    J. Lo would be goat…

    cuz of that ass in the 90′s… please stop frontin…

  16. D_Block_4_Life Says:

    Joe aint been the same since.
    ^
    Lies. Me, Myself & I is arguably his best album to date and EITR was very dope. Plus Loyalty came out after Joe jumped in the pool.

  17. Fresh Huxtable Says:

    So I’d probably put Crazy Legs, the Beatnuts, Pun, Bobbito Garcia in my initial Latino Hip Hop Hall of fame for categories of Originator, Producer, MC, and Entrepreneur/Ambassador respectively

  18. Black Says:

    Flipside is a perfect example

    ^^^

    He completely stole that song.

    EXACTLY and this is why i was telling my man over the weekend that Kiss deserves a spot in the top 10 ahead of Pun because of his CONTRIBUTION to hip-hop.

    True. Member of DITC. Let the world hear Pun. Classic albums. Club bangers. Fat Joe is a Legend.

  21. Els Says:

    Had to email that Jay Electronica t-shirt guy and he just got like 60 orders he said.

    If you can sell T-Shirts, Jay drop an album

  22. Black Says:

    P I M P, UP!!! H O E S, u know the rest

  23. TheCo!!inB Says:

    Say Peedi is trash if you want. That nigga was killin State Prop when he got on tracks. I wouldn’t leave an open 16 around that nigga….I don’t care how many bubble bath pictures the nigga takes. When he’s in his zone he spits lava.

  24. landlord Says:

    “I’m talking O. Sparks five, ride for a dollar bill
    Famous up in Hollywood, high in them Holly-hills
    I, can’t deny how the mamis feel
    Higher then a cable bill, slide with your baby girl
    P. Crakk and I ain’t for play
    I got a mack that’ll change your day..”

    ^
    fair assessment, except Pun was the first Latin Rapper that really was getting love from all over. joe’s been in it for a minute and has contributed since DITC, but I felt like Pun did for Latinos what Em did for whites in terms of mainstream rap acceptance

    [...] names and work of these artists and know who they are or seen it years ago. Thanks, Dan! Props to NR for posting this. This entry was posted by DJ Franchise a/k/a Stringer Fell on Tuesday, April [...]

  43. Van Sertima Says:

    Calling Bansky a “street artist” is a 100% fail. Es you know as well as I do that he’s a fucking writer, and when writers gain a certain level of exposure “they” call them “street artist”. ban, lee, futura, shep, kawz, zaph, echo, are all fucking writers. fuck that “street artist” shit. That’s like calling the great Crazy Legs a “street dancer”. gtfoh, don’t support that bullshit.
