GET TICKETS: Art and Craft (POV Film Series)

Art and Craft (POV Film Series)

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.

The POV Film Series features a distinguished series of independent documentaries broadcast by PBS. All POV screenings are followed by facilitated audience conversations.

Admission to the POV Film Series is free but registration is required!
