Mark Landis is one of the most prolific and notorious "artists" of the century, an expert forger who has duped and befuddled curators across the nation. Many have dedicated years tracking his escapades with one burning question: “Why?” Framed as a cat-and-mouse chase between Landis and those he has hoodwinked, Art and Craft paints a richly complicated portrait of mental illness, skewed philanthropy, and the desire to feel connected. | Read More

BAD HAIR

Junior, a nine-year-old living in Caracas, wants nothing more than to straighten his unruly hair—a fixation that stirs homophobic panic in his overtaxed mother. Each effort Junior makes to alter his appearance and gain his mother’s love is brushed off with abrasive avoidance until he’s ultimately faced with a heartbreaking decision. With a painfully tender performance by Samuel Lange, Bad Hair captures the search for identity as it clashes with intolerance. | Read More

A reverie of images and sound, Below Dreams follows the narratives of three very different people returning to New Orleans for the promise of a better life. As each character experiences the city, it becomes clear that their individual hopes and dreams are not possible without sacrifice. Shot documentary style but with dreamlike qualities melding fiction and reality, this is a hypnotic tribute to both the socially marginalized and to New Orleans itself. | Read More
