Art Movie Project : Exit Through the Gift Shop
1. In a few sentences, summarize the main action of the film (and indicate the film you chose). This should be brief, think plot summary.
The main action was to show a filmmaker, group of artists and their opinion of their art in a whole.

By this, I mean the newer more up to date art made today, not the old art which follow guidelines. Other students who like graffiti artists should watch this
