Banksy may have not been invited to the Venice Biennale art exhibit but the street artist has become the star of the show. A week after an unverified, Banksy-like mural of a migrant waving a rescue torch appeared on a canal wall, he set up a similar refugee-themed painting amongst the local street vendors. Titled "Venice in Oil," the multi-frame piece depicts a massive cruise ship sailing past the city as gondola boats float by. Banksy released this video to claim the artwork along with the message "Despite being the largest and most prestigious art event in the world, for some reason, I've never been invited."
Jennifer Kent's period piece strays from the horrors of her 2014 film The Babadook for a story of pure violence. Set in Tasmania in 1825, the film follows a woman seeking revenge after the murder of her husband and baby. Along the way, she enlists the help of an Aboriginal tracker to navigate her through the dense forest. Starring Aisling Franciosi and Baykali Ganambarr, The Nightingale will go to theaters August 2, 2019.
