Art and Craft
May 29, 2015
Art and Craft tells the story of Mark Landis, one of the most prolific art forgers in US history. Diagnosed as a teenager with schizophrenia and multiple behavioral disorders in the 1970's, Landis had endured a lifetime of marginalization as a person living with mental illness and his elaborate thirty-year forgery con became a means to change all that, allowing him to regain control and finally be given respect. After the screening, the film’s director, Sam Cullman joined Dr. Stephen Marder and Dr. Andrew Leuchter in discussion.
