ART AND CRAFT

Directed by Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 89 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE ART AND CRAFT
Mark Landis is perhaps the most prolific art forger the U.S. has ever seen. He’s duped curators throughout the nation with precise imitations from Matisse to Picasso, curiously never asking for money, but instead donating his counterfeits free of charge. After 30 years of conning the art industry, Landis is first discovered by Matthew Leininger, a registrar from Cincinnati, who has since dedicated years to tracking the man who hoodwinked him, in search of answers. But Landis' motivations are far more layered than simple deception. Diagnosed with schizophrenia, there's a question if he even knows that he is being deceptive at all. Through a richly complex lens, Art and Craft delicately balances a portrait of an outsider living with mental illness and the universal desire to be a part of a community.
