To promote the release of their user-generated Banksy documentary, Banksy Does New York, HBO will release one short clip from the film on YouTube everyday this week leading up to its premiere on HBO Go this Friday, October 31. However, each video will only be available from HBO for 24 hours. How's that for hype?
The documentary from filmmaker Chris Moukarbel follows the iconic street artist's 31-day New York Residency, Better Out Than In, through crowd-sourced footage captured by eyewitnesses, letting us relive our Twitter and Facebook feeds from October 2013 in one neatly packaged, feature-length film.
The first video (below) shows a young couple driving through Manhattan using Twitter to track down Banksy's October 9 Night Vision Horse installation in the Lower East Side.
