Gabriola Isle of the Arts Festival: Movie Night 'Art and Craft'

add to outlook add to google calendar remind me

Monday, April 6th, 2015
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

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.

“Winner” ~ National Board of Review, Top 5 Documentary
“Spectacular. An engrossing cat-and-mouse story.” ~ LA Times
“Perversely satisfying. The art world deserves him.” ~ NY Times

Mark Landis has been called one of the most prolific art forgers in US history. His impressive body of work spans thirty years, covering a wide range of painting styles and periods that includes 15th century icons, Picasso, and even Walt Disney. But after duping Matthew Leininger, a registrar who 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. www.artandcraftfilm.com
