Location: Upstairs Screening Room, Movies at Midway, map
Admission: $4 for members and $6 for non-members.

Just added to the Academy Award® shortlist for Best Documentary feature, this film is a fascinating glimpse into the life of art forger, Mark Landis. A small eccentric Mississippian, with a history of mental illness, Landis copied works by famous artists such as Dr. Seuss, Charles Schultz, and even Pablo Picasso, convincingly enough that he was able to donate them to museums all over the Southern United States. When his deceitful philanthropy is exposed, he must take responsibility for the legacy of his 30-year fraud. Marshall Fine of nyfcc.com says, Art and Craft is like a mystery story where you know who did it and then watch the authorities zero in on him . . . ” [2014, USA, Runtime: 89 min, Not Rated].

A post-film discussion will be led by Kim Klabe. Kim is the Education Director for the Rehoboth Art League.
