Tribeca: Art Forgery Documentary Gets Distribution

Art and Craft film Tribeca

Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American rights to art forgery documentary “Art and Craft,” which world premieres next month at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Oscilloscope plans a theatrical release for the late summer and early fall for the film that is produced and directed by Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman.

The film centers on Mark Landis, perhaps the most prolific art forger in U.S. history. While he could fetch millions of dollars on the open market, he donates his counterfeits for free.

Cullman previously co-directed the Oscar-nominated documentary “If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front,” which was also released by Oscilloscope. Grausman is the director of the documentary “Pressure Cooker.”

Executive producers are Lisa Kleiner Chanoff and Bonni Cohen of Catapult Film Fund and Christopher Clements, Julie Goldman and Carolyn Hepburn of Motto Pictures.
