Tim’s Vermeer is a documentary directed by the magician Teller, who is also comedian, writer, actor, producer, musician and now, filmmaker. The main figure of the film is the inventor Tim Jenison, who tried to prove that the Flemish master Johannes Vermeer painted with the aid of optical devices. The film was released last year during the Toronto International Film Festival, and has been well welcomed. This documentary analyzes one of the greatest mysteries in art history: How could Vermeer paint so realistically each detail of his paintings, 150 years before the invention of photography.
