Tim's Vermeer Poster

"Awe-inspiring!" Among the many fantastic documentaries of 2013, one we suggest seeking out at your earliest convenience is a fun, fascinating art doc called Tim's Vermeer. The doc is the directing debut of Teller, one half of Penn & Teller, both of whom produced this film about their friend Tim Jenison, who attempts (and pretty much does) debunk the myth of artist Johannes Vermeer and how he painted such detailed artwork. The film has been receiving rave reviews from festivals all over (I saw it in Telluride and enjoyed it quite a bit) and has made the cut for the Oscar's Best Documentary shortlist, meaning it has a chance for a nomination. I'm sure a trailer is next, but until then check out the new poster below via HitFix.

Tim's Vermeer Poster - Directed by Teller

In Tim's Vermeer we meet Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor (LightWave) who attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch master Johannes Vermeer manage to paint so photo-realistically - 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory is as extraordinary as what he discovers. The documentary is directed by Teller, produced by Penn Jillette, and first premiered at the Telluride & Toronto Film Festivals this fall. Read my glowing review from Telluride. The doc is in the running for Best Documentary at the Oscars. Tim's Vermeer will hit limited theaters December 6th and later in early 2014. Stay tuned for updates + a trailer.
