Documentary filmmaker and Corcoran School alumnus Chris Moukarbel, Fine Art BFA ’04, could not have asked for better footage for the opening sequence of his HBO documentary film, Banksy Does New York. The film centers on the impact of Banksy on the city during his month-long residency in October 2013. The film premiered on HBO November 2014 with numerous accolades for its originality because it is almost entirely based on footage generated from New York’s social media landscape.
