Check out this awesome new trailer for an awesome art documentary. The doc is called Bansky & The Rise of Outlaw Art. I’m sure most of you already know who Banksy is. You are here so that means you like street art and know about Banksy already.
The film focuses on the artist and how he has helped inspire a new movement of street art. Here’s the synopsis:
As the world’s most infamous street artist, Banksy’s political art, criminal stunts and daring invasions have outraged the establishment for over two decades, but despite being one of the most important figures of our times, Banksy has remained an enigma, with little known about the circumstances of his life and work. His rise coincided with the emergence of Street Art, a form of illegal, public art that evolved from the graffiti scene to change the face of cities across the world. Banksy became the leading figure in this revolutionary new movement, assembling a multi-million dollar empire and changing the way that we think about art. Through it all, however, his identity has remained shrouded in mystery…
Banksy & The Rise of Outlaw Art was directed by documentary producer/filmmaker Elio Espana, director of the films Dawn of the Dead: The Grateful Dead & the Rise of the San Francisco Underground, CSNY: Fifty by Four, Feats First: The Life & Music of Lowell George, and Hamilton: One Shot to Broadway previously.
Vision Films will release the doc on VOD on February 18th.
