May 15, 2020 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm America/Los Angeles Timezone
Online via Zoom
This month we’re doing another Zoom discussion and the film is Exit Through the Gift Shop.   This is the award winning documentary on Graffiti art and artists,  It features the well-known mysterious pop artist, Banksy and others.  He claims to be the Director of the film but you’ll have to judge for yourself.  
Last month we had a problem getting Zoom figured out and eventually we had to re-boot the software and it worked after that.  I hope all goes well this month.  Just keep in mind we’re in the background trying to make it work and it may take a few minutes.  You can log in anytime after 6:45pm on Friday.  Just use the links below.
Please watch the film before coming to the discussion.

Here’s an entertaining documentary about graffiti and pop artists.  It sheds light on a youth subculture that has to show its art.  How one Frenchman who migrated to the U.S. and made his way through a little-known world of pop culture.  It came out in 2010, 87 mins long and can be watched in sessions.   It’s a fast-paced capture of Thierry Guetta’s journey and the ways of a famously mysterious street artist named Bansky.  When it’s done, you’ll have a better understanding of this art.
  • Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary Feature 
  • Nominated for Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature
I’ll send out a Zoom invitation later to have a discussion on our regular night, May 15, 7:00pm.  You can probably teach me what this film was really about.
