Airdate: The Banksy Job
Anarchic 'art terrorists' take on street graffiti in a brazen documentary.
Arts documentary The Banksy Job centres around the mysterious and notorious artist Banksy who dominates the world of street art.
But in this doco the spotlight shines on another character, AK47, an ex-porn star and acid rave promoter turned self-anointed ‘art terrorist.’
Declaring himself the villain to Banksy’s hero, AK47 sets out to swipe a well-known piece of Banksy’s public art, in broad daylight, in Central London. The ensuing heist thriller is told to by AK47 himself, and a highly entertaining art-world caper begins.
Blurring the lines between what is fiction and what is fact, Ian Roderick Gray and Dylan Harvey’s debut film is a rollicking ride, a frenetic and adrenaline-fueled crime caper that catapults its audience from the London art scene to its underground, making for a feature film experience (almost) as wild, unbelievable, and insane as its protagonist.
