RadioWest and Utah Film Center have partnered to present the best in documentary filmmaking. We talk with established and new directors who are changing the way audiences see the world and then screen their films.

Through the Lens: Art and Craft

Wednesday we continue our Through the Lens series with “Art and Craft,” an intriguing film about a beguiling man. Mark Landis is soft-spoken, slight of frame and long on talent. His artwork has appeared in museums across America, but really, they’re not his. Landis is an art forger and a self-styled philanthropist who donates his fakes to institutions. The filmmakers Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman join Doug to discuss their film about Landis, his enigmatic past, and the people he’s duped.

On Wednesday, July 9, RadioWest and The Utah Film Center will present a free screening of ART and CRAFT, and Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman will join Doug for a Q&A via Skype immediately following the film. The event is at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center [map] in downtown Salt Lake City. It begins at 7:00 p.m., but you should arrive early to get a seat. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
