NEW YORK PREMIERE
Written & Directed by Andrea Marini

ABOUT THE FILM
Art of the Prank is an emotional and humorous journey following the evolution of artist Joey Skaggs, a fierce proponent of independent thinking and the man who has turned the media hoax into an art form. Famed for such media fictions as the Celebrity Sperm Bank, the Cathouse for Dogs, the Fat Squad, and Portofess (a mobile Catholic confessional booth), he’s one of America’s most notorious socio-political satirists and media activists. Filmmaker Andrea Marini interweaves fascinating archival footage with a singular and unforgettable moment, when Skaggs decides to pull off the most demanding hoax of his career—setting his sights on film festivals to do it.
