Saving Banksy focuses on the street artist’s oblique relationship to the art market– an anonymous artist whose public works aren’t for sale. Or are they?
“Saving Banksy” is the story of one misguided art collector’s attempts to save a Banksy painting from destruction and the auction block. Featuring some of the world’s top street artists, this film poses the question “What would you do if you owned a million dollar painting that the artist doesn’t want sold?”
“Fascinating…” – The New York Times
“A lively, involving documentary…” – Los Angeles Times
“Fast-moving, beautifully produced documentary about an art collector’s rescue of a famous piece of graffiti art.” – Film Journal International
