<em>TIM'S VERMEER </em> 2013 M

TIM'S VERMEER 2013 M

Sunday 22 February | 11.00am | Cinema A, GOMA

DIGITAL CINEMA, COLOUR, STEREO, 80 MINUTES, USA, ENGLISH, DUTCH / DIRECTOR: TELLER

Free / No bookings required; places are limited; please arrive early to secure your seat

 

Directed by Teller of Penn & Teller fame, Tim’s Vermeer documents the journey of Tim Jenison, a Texas-based inventor who undertakes an eight-year odyssey to uncover the ‘technology’ used by Dutch master Johannes Vermeer (1632–75) in the creation of his near-photorealistic paintings. Convinced they were painted with the help of optical interventions, Jenison sets out to recreate The Music Lesson (circa 1662) literally from the ground up.

Suggested by Denise Rowland:
'This intriguing documentary shows the re-creation of Vermeer's The Music Lesson by inventor Tim Jenison to prove his theory that the Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer created his paintings with the aid of optical devices.'
