THE MAN WHO STOLE BANKSY

In 2007 Banksy slips into Palestine to paint on walls. Among the artworks Banksy and his team left in the streets of Bethlehem, one in particular, the mural of an Israeli soldier asking a donkey for its papers incites fury: it's one thing to enter the territory and start working without even introducing yourself to the community, but it's quite another to depict them as asses for all the world to see. Local taxi driver Walid steps in and with the support of the community and a water-jet stone cutter cuts out the offending wall. His declared aim: to put it on Ebay and sell it to the highest bidder. What follows is a story of clashing cultures, art, identity, theft and black market.
Ono što sledi je priča o sukobu kultura, umetnosti, identiteta, krađe i crnog tržišta.
