In conjunction with our Hound in the Hunt gallery experiments, Cinemona presents Tim’s Vermeer, the feature documentary that introduced most of us to Tim Jenison. Once described as the ‘ultimate geek documentary,’ the film pays patient, passionate attention to Tim’s investigative processes, their technical details and the delights of discovery. You may or may not be convinced by Tim’s premise—that Vermeer was aided by novel optical instruments—but you will want him to succeed in his ultimate goal of painting a Vermeer himself.
