Banksy Does New York (2014, U.S.A.)

Studio: Madman

Rating: M

Running time: 98 minutes

Available Format: DVD

Over the course of a month-long residency in New York in October, 2013, Banksy and his team took to the streets – secretly creating a variety of public work ranging from elaborate conceptual stunts to traditional graffiti art.  Constantly evading a citywide search by the NYPD, Banksy’s work created a public response that was an equal mix of reverence and derision.  From a Central Park stand where priceless originals were anonymously sold for $60, to a junkyard in Queens; New York City served as the canvas for this street art vigilante.  BANKSY DOES NEW YORK is an exhilarating survey of Banksy’s city-wide exhibit and at the same time a vibrant portrait of the city itself.
