BANKSY‘s subterranean screenings of his new documentary, “Exit Through The Gift Shop” in a makeshift pop-up theater in an unused subway tube beneath London’s Waterloo Station kicked off this week to queues of rabid fans. Miraculously, the UK bomber managed to keep news of the screenings and his dank setup totally secret until last week’s surprise announcement when screenings (twice daily until March 4th) instantly sold out via online sales. The theater features copious amounts of street art inside and out and functions as much as an impromptu Banksy art show as a movie theater. Ironically—or perhaps, appropriately—enough, patrons were forbidden to bring any spray paint or other graffiti marking tools into the screening. Of course, Mr Banks was a no-show (or was he?), but his melted ice cream truck concession stand proved a hit across the board. Have a look at the setup: Read More

Supertouch buddy KOSTAS SEREMETIS has just completed his STAR WARS-based art film (yes, you read that correctly), “Trilogy.” If that wasn’t weird enough for you, the March 7th premiere will take place at the CINEMATHEQUE de TANGER in Morocco. Read on:

“TRILOGY”
2009 / 126 mins / by Kostas Seremetis

A moving visual and aural collage consisting of the Star Wars Trilogy, artist Kostas Seremetis edited this 126 minute film, taking the right third of Star Wars, the middle third of Empire Strikes Back and the left third of Return of the Jedi, synchronizing them to dissonant effect. Every frame is a study in Abstract Expressionist Pop art as this moving collage of the most iconic films of our time moves to the sounds of the three films playing simultaneously. Characters move in and out of portions of the screen, ships and battles appear and disappear melding into one part of the screen from another part while the third portion of the screen portrays a crucial moment of discovery in a character’s development.

**Still no YouTube trailer for the film, unfortunately. Kostas, WTF?!?…
