NSFW LANGUAGE He goes by the name AK47 – and that’s about as delicate as the self-described “art terrorist” gets. Making its world premiere Sunday at The Tribeca Film Festival, The Banksy Job profiles street artist AK47 – real name Andy Link – in his incredibly complex attempt to steal a Central London artwork by fellow (and much more famous) artist Banksy. Why? Because Banksy refused to sign his darn print. And if you think AK47 said darn, you obviously haven’t watched this clip, which Deadline unveils here exclusively. Directed by Ian Roderick Gray and Dylan Harvey, The Banksy Job is bowing in Tribeca’s Spotlight section, and got a boost of publicity when AK47 – former porn star, football hooligan and multiple arrestee – was denied a U.S. visa to attend the Tribeca fest. The Banksy Job debuts without him Sunday at 9:30 PM ET at Manhattan’s Bow Tie Chelsea 6.
