Exit Through the Gift Shop, A Banksy Film

The movie dubbed The Banksy Film will premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival later this month. Film maker Terry Guetta met and filmed the most famous street-artist of our time.

“Banksy turns the tables on the only man who has ever filmed him, creating a remarkable documentary that is part personal journey and part an expos√© of the art world with its mind-altering mix of hot air and hype.”

“The world’s first street art disaster movie”

January 24 is the day of the premiere, however, there is no chance on pre-ordering tickets as movies-goers are being put on a wait list. Portishead‘s very own Geoff Barrow is the man responsible for the soundtrack of this must-see documentary.

No infos on a regular release date, there is not even an IMDb page at this point.

Earlier in July, Ahu did a very nice summer mix for the folks at Brainfeeder. Vida Ahu Nova has music from Henri Mancini, Marcos Valle, Les Baxter and that kind of stuff.

Another mixtape comes from Werk Discs, presumably mixed by Zomby. Like the album, it is called Where Were U in 92? (direct link). Unfortunately, there’s no tracklist.

Swindle Magazine got an article with two legendary artists in conversation, Obey‘s Shepard Fairy interviews Bristol street artist Banksy. Great and highly entertaining read!

The guys of Beyondjazz have posted a video and a download for Jazzanova‘s recent concert at the 10 Days Off festival in Belgium.

And then, there’s a teaser to the Mary Anne Hobbs’ upcoming compilation on Planet Mu.
