‘Art and Craft’ paints engaging portrait of world-class art forger, con man and prankster, Friday, Sept. 25 on POV

On Friday, Sept. 25 at 10 p.m. (check local listings), POV presents the national broadcast premiere of Art and Craft, directed by Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman, and co-directed by Mark Becker. 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 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. Produced in association with American Documentary | POV. Read more.
Art and Craft is the second in a trio of POV special presentations that explore how art shapes identity. Cutie and the Boxer, which aired on Friday, Sept. 18, about the unconventional 40-year marriage between painters Ushio and Noriko Shinohara, and Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case on Friday, Oct. 2, looks at the world-renowned Chinese artist and his government's attempts to silence him.

This stunning dissection of the persecution of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei explores how the government’s attempts to silence him have backfired and turned him into an irrepressible voice for free speech and human rights around the globe. Official Selection of the 2013 International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam. Read more.
