How To Sell A Banksy

A man tries to conserve, mount, and ultimately sell a pilfered, crumbling piece of Banksy's street art in this intriguing documentary. After covertly removing an iconic piece of graffiti from a bridge and then stowing it away, an unemployed bloke spends a lot of money framing the enormous piece, hoisting it up the side of a building and swinging it in through a removed window, and finds that it's easier said than done to actually find someone willing to buy it. Interviews with movers and shakers in the art world only adds another coat of paint to an already grey art landscape where morality seemingly has a price tag.
