The Saturday screening of 'Saving Banksy’ will feature a live panel talk moderated by Hector Campbell, featuring director Colin Day, internationally renowned street artists and co-stars of the film, Ben Eine and Blek le Rat, Godfather of Bristol Graffiti, John Nation and Lonely Planet Street Art author Ed Bartlett.
The documentary – recipient of a New York Times Critics’ Pick – cleverly explores some of the more intriguing aspects of the street art scene and broader art world to a backdrop of the work of anonymous Bristol-born artist, Banksy.
The screening is part of ARNOLFINI X THE FUTURE TENSE – a weekend-long series of events programmed by Bristol-based independent art platform The Future Tense, taking place in and around the Arnolfini to coincide with the launch of Lonely Planet’s latest gift book, Street Art.
Lonely Planet’s Street Art is a 224-page hardback guide to the world of street art, documenting 15 annual festivals and hundreds of locations in 42 international cities, including interviews with some of the most prolific and well-known street artists such as Blek le Rat, Faile, Vhils, Remi Rough, Nunca and Faith47.
The book will be available through Arnolfini Bookshop for a special price of £12.99 during the event.
Tickets for the Saving Banksy screenings will go on sale exclusively via Arnolfini’s Box Office at 10am on Thursday April 6th.
