High-Light of Film Fest

Watch Exit Through the Gift Shop, an absolutely fascinating more-or-less-documentary about graffiti and street art and a videographer who gets caught up in that world.  The film is created (or salvaged?) by Banksy, the famous and very accomplished street artist.  The movie slows a bit in the middle (after the elephant!) but stick with it, because the end is one of the best parts.

It talks about... well, everything: what's art; who makes it; how; why; how money and art collide or connive or...
Watch and report back!  Lots to discuss.
