Film: Exit Through the Gift Shop (www.banksyfilm.com) follows an eccentric shop-keeper turned amateur film-maker as he attempts to capture many of the world’s most infamous street artists on camera, only to have a British stencil artist named Banksy turn the camcorder back on its owner. This is the inside story of Street Art – a brutal and revealing account of what happens when fame, money and vandalism collide.
Many of the graffiti art pieces will remain on display at Market Hall’s gallery space until the end of May.
This event has been supported by the Peterborough County City Health Unit, ReFrame Peterborough International Film Festival, The Bridge Youth Center, The United Way, and the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board.
