'Point and Shoot': Provincetown Review

25 June 2014 8:44 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The thin line separating heroism from narcissism runs like a taut tripwire through Point and Shoot, Marshall Curry's riveting study of self-styled adventurer and rebel freedom fighter Matthew VanDyke. A sheltered Baltimore guy with few friends, VanDyke set himself "a crash course in manhood" that culminated with him joining the 2011 Libyan Revolution to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi. As he demonstrated in his Oscar-nominated eco-terrorism doc, If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front, Curry has a knack for crafting a gripping non-fiction thriller while keeping an incredibly tight focus on his obsessive subject.

Documentary Community Embraces Tribeca Fest

16 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Documentaries “Street Fight,” “Jesus Camp,” “Which Way Home” and “Taxi to the Dark Side” have two things in common: Oscar nominations (which “Taxi” would go on to win) and world premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival.

It’s no secret the majority of docs that garner Academy recognition debut at Sundance or Toronto. But in recent years Tribeca has stepped up its game and become a top-tier doc showcase.

Since 2010, five Tribeca doc debuts — “Under Our Skin,” “Soundtrack for a Revolution,” “Semper Fi: Always Faithful,” “Bully” and “Which Way Home” — made the Oscar shortlist.

This year, the fest introduces 12 docs via its World Documentary competition. These include “1971,” a pre-WikiLeaks story about Vietnam-era activists; “Misconception,” a look at the consequences of population growth; and “Regarding Susan Sontag,” focusing on the seminal cultural critic and writer.

F For Fake…Oscilloscope Grab “Art and Craft” Prior to Tribeca Film Fest Premiere

26 March 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

If Tim’s Vermeer found traces of lenses and mirrors in the painting process, Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman’s Art and Craft looks to set aside the smoke and mirrors of the undertaking. Deadline reports that Oscilloscope, a distrib co. that pretty much works with a 50/50 fiction/non-fiction slate, acquired the rights to the doc just prior to its Tribeca Film Fest showing and will put the film out theatrically later in the year.

Gist: Following a prolific (and still-active) art forger who donates his work to museums instead of selling it, Art and Craft uncovers a curious story of obsession and understanding at the intersection of art, philanthropy and mental health.

Worth Noting: Previous creds for Cullman include the Oscar-nominated co-director of 2011′s If A Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front (see trailer below), and in the Jennifer Grausman camp, she directed the Emmy-nominated Pressure Cooker. »

Tribeca: Art Forgery Documentary Gets Distribution

26 March 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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.
