Cinematheque . Film Schedule . SAVING BANKSY

Film Details

Cleveland premiere!


United States | 2014 | Colin M. Day


This “lively, involving documentary” (L.A. Times) explores the efficacy and ethics of saving street art from defacement and destruction—and then selling it for a lot of money that the artist does not share. The film centers on one well-meaning San Francisco collector who tries to save a rat painted in 2010 on the side of a Haight-Ashbury building by famed, anonymous British street artist Banksy. His intention is to donate it to a museum, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions… DCP. 80 min.
