Art & Craft - A POV/PBS Documentary

Tuesday, December 13, 2016 - 6:30pm
Event location: 
Ambler
Mark Landis is one of the most prolific art forgers of the modern era — and he isn't in it for the money. In the last 30 years he's copied hundreds of pieces, from 15th-century icons to works by Picasso and even Dr. Seuss, then donated them to museums across the country. When a tenacious registrar discovers the ruse, Landis must confront his legacy and a chorus of duped professionals intent on stopping him. But Landis is a diagnosed schizophrenic, driven since his teens to escape "the life of a mental patient," and ending the con isn't so simple. A cat-and-mouse caper told with humor and compassion, Art and Craft uncovers the universal in one man's search for connection and respect.

  • Official Selection of the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.
  • Named a Top 5 Documentary by the National Board of Review.
