A intersting look into street art, but not graffiti
This documentary can be challenged by many, saying "It isn't real." Directed by street artist Banksy, it showcases the personal lives of the artists, while also (possibly) shows Banksy real face, as possible alter ego Thierry. Very intresting. Check it out if you see it in a store.
Mezmerizing documentary that takes a look on two street artists, one named Banksy, and another named Terry Gupta. But be warned, there's also strong smoking and language. Make sure you watch this "dandy docu" with you're kids 10 and up
Art is a wonderful thing. This documentary gives its viewers an inside look into the deeper meaning of what street art really is. It also helps you understand what makes a person a "true artist" or not.

Should have been rated PG-13
Exit Through the Gift Shop is a fun docu about a french man who becomes involved in street art. Although some of Guetta's "coincidences" are debated, it is still a great story and shows an interesting perspective on street artists. There are only around five uses of the f-word (some in subtitles or written). Also keep in mind there is some illegal graffiti drawing footage in the movie, but other than that I can't think of any other objectionable content. You might want to discuss with your kids that Guetta's success is far-fetched and mostly subject to his luck. Also remind them the consequences of vandalism and there is a difference between street art and wrecking private property. Otherwise, Exit Through the Gift Shop should be fine for kids in late middle school and up.
