Sup Doc: The Documentary Podcast
Ep 99 EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP with musician Eric Steuer
George spoke with Eric Steuer about one of his favorite docs, EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP (2010)
The only film credited to Banksy, Exit Through The Gift Shop tells the story of Thierry Guetta, a self-taught street artist/documentarian who ends up becoming the subject of the film. It has to be seen to be believed, and even then there’s a lot that is unbelievable, as befits a prankster like Banksy. Is Thierry aka Mr. Brainwash real or a long con? We get into the theories and the comedy of the art world.
