Back to the visual arts for a moment, ‘Art and Craft’ is a new documentary about Mark Landis, One of the Most Prolific Art Forgers in U.S. History.
Although he has never been convicted as a criminal, as he donates his work to museums and doesn’t look to con money from unwitting art collectors. The story follows Matthew Leininger, a registrar who uncovers the ruse and begins to investigate his decades of deception.
Directed by Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman; Co-directed by Mark Becker
