Mr. Redford, who served as producer of the iconic 1976 film "All The President's Men", brought the s...tory of Watergate to the screen with authenticity, power and precise detail while doing justice to a seminal chapter in American history.

          The insane true story of the heist that shocked the Art World! The equally mysterious and notorious artist Banksy dominates tales from the world of street art, but in The Banksy Job, the spotlight shines on another characterthe gritty, charismatic, and larger-than-life, AK47an ex...-porn star and acid rave promoter turned self-anointed art terrorist. Declaring himself the villain to Banksys hero, AK47 sets out to swipe a well-known piece of Banksys public art, in broad daylight, in Central London, no less. The ensuing heist thriller is told to us by AK47 himself, and a highly entertaining art-world caper begins. Blurring the lines between what is fiction and what is fact, Ian Roderick Gray and Dylan Harvey's debut film is a rollicking ride, a frenetic and adrenaline-fueled crime caper that catapults its audience from the London art scene to its underground, making for a feature film experience (almost) as wild, unbelievable, and insane as its protagonist.

Filmed over three years, Oil In The Blood features interviews with almost 300 bike builders, riders, journalists, artists and racers from Britain, Europe, Japan, Australia, the Far East, Africa and the US alongside major manufactures Harley Davidson, Yamaha, Royal Enfield, Ducati and BMW.
