Little surprise then, that in this latest film he was unwilling to be filmed by an eccentric French shop owner named Thierry Guetta. EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP traces Thierry’s attempts to capture the world of graffiti art in thrilling detail, following many of the best known vandals at work in the streets. EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP follows Thierry’s efforts to locate and befriend Banksy only to have the street artist turn the camera back on its owner, as Banksy convinces Thierry to become a street artist himself. We witness Thierry reinventing himself as street artist MBW, an acronym for "Mr. Brainwash" – Quality work from Banksy and with spectacular results.
Created, filmed and starring true social agitators, this true story of low-level criminality, companionship and hilarious incompetence.
