THE BANKSY JOB

TFF 2016 Directed by Ian Roderick Gray and Dylan Harvey
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE THE BANKSY JOB [TFF 2016]
The equally mysterious and notorious artist Banksy dominates tales from the world of street art, but in The Banksy Job, the spotlight shines on another character—the gritty, charismatic, and larger-than-life, AK47—an ex-porn star and acid rave promoter turned self-anointed ‘art terrorist.’ Declaring himself the villain to Banksy’s hero, AK47 sets out to swipe a well known piece of Banksy’s public art, in broad daylight, in Central London, no less. The ensuing heist thriller is told to us by AK47 himself, and a highly entertaining art-world caper begins. Blurring the lines between what is fiction and what is fact, Ian Roderick Gray and Dylan Harvey's debut film is a rollicking ride, a frenetic and adrenaline-fueled crime caper that catapults its audience from the London art scene to its underground, making for a feature film experience (almost) as wild, unbelievable, and insane as its protagonist.
