An Exclusive First Look at the Upcoming 'Saving Banksy' Documentary

“It’s not art unless you can sell it for lots of money.”

Here we have an exclusive first look at the upcoming documentary Saving Banksy which tells the true story of one misguided art collector’s attempt to save a Banksy piece from destruction and the auction block. Though his work is deemed illegal by authorities, Banksy’s works have been removed by art dealers and resold at auctions for hundreds of thousands of dollars, while the artist himself receives nothing. Directed by Colin Day and narrated by Paul Polycarpou, the film features interviews with renowned street artists from all across the globe including Ben Eine, Risk, Revok, Niels Mueman, Blek Le Rat, Anthony Lister, Doze Green, Hera and Glen E Friedman. Head over to SavingBanksy.com for more info.
