SAVING BANKSY (SCANDINAVIAN PREMIERE)



Saving Banksy is the true story of one misguided art collector’s attempt to save a painting by infamous British street artist Banksy from destruction and the auction block. It asks the question, ‘What would you do if you woke up one morning and found a million dollar Banksy spray-painted on the side of your building?’

Banksy has created some of the world’s most iconic street art. His work is deemed illegal by authorities, but at auction, Banksy street-paintings sell for hundreds-of-thousands of dollars. While his work is created for the public, Banksy paintings are being removed by art dealers and resold at auction for huge profits, and the artist receives nothing. The movie is a rare and revealing look at the secretive world of street art and graffiti and its new-found value and worth in the traditional art world.

“The importance of ‘Saving Banksy’ is the dialogue of preserving versus stealing one’s art. I hope people take away the overarching theme of the film. Artists as a whole including musicians and filmmakers all have their art stolen on a daily basis,” said graffiti artist Kelly ‘Risk’ Graval. “This is the bigger discussion that needs to be recognized by all. If people do the crime whether it be stealing intellectually or physically it’s all the same and the consequences should be treated accordingly.”
