Banksy documentary to open Dubai Lynx

Anonymous British graffiti artist Banksy’s Oscar-nominated Exit Through The Gift Shop is to kick off this year’s Dubai Lynx.

Billed as “the world’s first street art disaster movie”, the film was nominated in the best documentary category at this year’s Oscars and will be screened on 27 March thanks to an association with The National. Underground artist Banksy is famous for work such as the nine images he painted on Israel’s West Bank barrier in 2005. The images included one of children digging a hole through the wall.

The Dubai Lynx and accompanying Dubai International Advertising Festival will be held at the Madinat Jumeirah from 27 to 29 March. The event is organised by the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival together with its regional partner, Motivate Publishing.
