Mild-Mannered Eccentric Mark Landis Fooled the Art World for 30 Years Until Being Discovered by a Tenacious, Sleuthing Museum Staffer
Produced in Association with American Documentary | POV
“Perversely satisfying. The art world deserves him.” —Stephen Holden, The New York Times
Mark Landis could be described as a genuine work of art. His Southern accent and genteel manner recall Truman Capote at his grandest. Landis occasionally masquerades as a priest, sips brandy from a Phillips’ Milk of Magnesia bottle and has dedicated much of his life’s work to a nonexistent sister.
He is also one of the preeminent art forgers and con men of our era and the subject of Art and Craft, a captivating, compassionate and often humorous documentary airing on PBS’s POV (Point of View) series as a special presentation on Friday, Sept. 25, 2015 at 10 p.m. (Check local listings.) The film was an Official Selection of the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival and International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam and was named a Top 5 documentary by the National Board of Review. POV is American television’s longest-running independent documentary series and the recipient of a 2013 MacArthur Foundation Award for Creative and Effective Institutions.
This event is a collaboration with POV, the award-winning independent non-fiction film series on PBS www.pbs.org/pov
