Banksy Does New York

Documentary on politically influential British street artist Banksy (who himself directed the Oscar-nominated doco Exit Through the Gift Shop) chronicling his 31 works of art in 31 days project in New York City.

On October 1st 2013, Banksy launched a self-proclaimed month-long residency in New York City, posting one unique exhibit a day in an unannounced location, sparking a 31-day scavenger hunt both online and on the streets for his work. Capturing this month of madness, the film incorporates user-generated content, from YouTube to Instagram, from New Yorkers and Banksy hunters alike, whose responses became part of the work itself.

The talking heads can't tell us much, but Moukarbel makes deft use of crowd-sourced footage to convey the wildly different ways New Yorkers engaged with the works.

It’s a surreal world. But this much seem to be true: Banksy has art down to a science.

A lively and engaging film... doesn’t give more than a passing voice to Banky’s critics and skeptics... But the film does a fine job of getting at the tension that each day’s new piece inspired.
