TVO Original “There Are No Fakes” reveals a dark tale of Indigenous art fraud and the legacy of a Canadian artistic icon
On February 1, TVO presents the world broadcast premiere of TVO Original There Are No Fakes. The feature documentary from filmmaker Jamie Kastner dives into the shadowy world of art fraud in Canada and brings into question the legacy of Anishinaabe artist and Canadian icon Norval Morrisseau.
“Norval Morrisseau is a towering figure in Canadian art,” says John Ferri, TVO Vice President of Current Affairs and Documentaries. “But the great appeal and enduring popularity of his iconic work has a dark side. There Are No Fakes is a journey into that darkness, and a brilliant exposé of how greed can corrupt a thing of beauty.”
