stjohnsAn award winning Penn and Teller documentary, the film follows Tim Jenison’s efforts to discover how Dutch master Johannes Vermeer created his paintings. Both an engineer and an art enthusiast, Jenison was fascinated by Vermeer’s paintings and their “photographic quality.” He had the resources and determination to investigate how Vermeer created them, and the audacity to try and reproduce Vermeer’s “The Music Lesson” using authentic 17th century materials, tools, and techniques. Reception follows screening.
