ART AND CRAFT

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Directed by Sam Cullman, Jennifer Grausman / 89 min.

Mark Landis and Director Sam Cullman are scheduled to attend and participate in a Q&A after the screening. 

Mark Landis has been called one of the most prolific art forgers in US history. And while the copies could fetch impressive sums on the open market, Landis isn't in it for money. Posing as a philanthropic donor, a grieving executor of a family member’s will, and most recently as a Jesuit priest, Landis has given away hundreds of works over the years to a staggering list of institutions across the United States. But after duping Matthew Leininger, a tenacious registrar who ultimately discovers the decades-long ruse and sets out to expose his philanthropic escapades to the art world, Landis must confront his own legacy and a chorus of museum professionals clamoring for him to stop. ART AND CRAFT starts out as a cat-and-mouse art caper, rooted in questions of authorship and authenticity – but what emerges is an intimate story of obsession and the universal need for community, appreciation, and purpose.
