Oscar-Nominated Documentary: Exit Through The Gift Shop
Monday August 29, 2011: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room
Join us for a screening of one of the most acclaimed films of the past year! This 90-minute Oscar-nominated documentary about art is a fascinating study of criminality, comradeship and incompetence.
"Exit Through the Gift Shop" is the inside story of Street Art - a brutal and revealing account of what happens when fame, money and vandalism collide.
The film, which is rated 'R' for language, follows an eccentric shop-keeper turned amateur film-maker as he attempts to capture many of the world's most infamous vandals on camera, only to have a British stencil artist named Banksy turn the camcorder back on its owner with wildly unexpected results.
