Avalon Distribution will release Exit Through The Gift Shop in Spain

Avalon Distribution has taken theatrical rights for Spain to Banksy documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop, following the film’s positive reaction at Sundance and Berlin.

Avalon sealed the deal with Cinetic International and plans to release the film in the autumn.

Exit Through The Gift Shop charts the relationship between the celebrated graffiti artist Banksy and a French videographer Thierry Guetta who befriends him and ultimately pursues his own artistic ambitions.

Banksy is featured throughout the film in shadow as he recalls events through a voice modifier. Welsh actor Rhys Ifans narrates. Jaimie D’Cruz produced and Holly Cushing and James Gay-Rees served as executive producers.

Cinetic has already sold the film to Madman for Australia and Revolver for the UK, who released it in cinemas at the end of last week.
