Trailer: “How to Sell a Banksy”

Do we really need another Banksy documentary? One not even directed by him? A new film called “How to Sell a Banksy” is on its way from directors Alper Cagatay and Christopher Thompson and it’s kind of like “Exit” combined with “Who the #$&% is Jackson Pollack” (or does that not really need combining?) since it deals with guys removing Banksy graffiti and trying to sell it, and whether or not that’s okay by the art world. The film’s website says it “raises questions of ownership, authentication and the true value of art itself. Through all the chaos and incompetence comes a modern-day, true-story, crime-theft, comedy-caper.” That won’t be nominated for Oscar.
