Tim's Vermeer

Inventor Tim Jenison had a pet theory that famed Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer used a primive camera obscura in order to paint his incredibly lifelike portraits. He wasn't the first to come up with the idea. But he was just rich enough, smart enough and obsessed enough to actually test the theory. This film documents Jenison's impressive, five-year attempt to recreate the painter's photorealistic work. This mixture or art history and historical fakery is rendered both entertaining and funny thanks to the producing/directing duo of Penn and Teller. (Yes, that Penn and Teller.) 80 minutes PG-13.
