2014. Colin M. Day. 80 min. USA. Color.

The New York Times: Critics' Pick

"Colin Day's fascinating documentary Saving Banksy rightly honors that renowned pseudonymous street artist whose work (often in public spaces, like a resort town) combines stenciled imagery with clever, cryptic phrases. But Saving Banksy has a larger goal: pointedly weighing graffiti's populist ethos against art-world profiteering." – Andy Webster, The New York Times

Saving Banksy is the story of one misguided art
collectors attempts to save a Banksy painting
from destruction and the auction block.

Featuring some of the world's top street artists,
this film poses the question "What would you do
if you owned a million dollar painting that the
artist doesn't want sold?"
