Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman’s feature documentary Art and Craft, about the infamous art forger Mark Landis, will screen on November 21 as part of the Full Frame Road Show presented by PNC. This is the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival’s last Third Friday screening of the year. Note that while Full Frame Third Friday screenings are free, all attendees must reserve a ticket via Eventbrite, available at 9 a.m. on the day of the event.

While Landis’s masterful copies could fetch impressive sums on the open market, he isn’t in it for money. Posing as a philanthropic donor, a grieving executor of a family member’s will, and, most recently, a Jesuit priest, Landis has given away hundreds of works to institutions across the United States. But after duping Matthew Leininger, a tenacious registrar who ultimately discovers the decades-long ruse, Landis must confront his own legacy and a chorus of museum professionals clamoring for him to stop. 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. View trailer.
