Fall Film Series: Creativity in Focus - Tim's Vermeer @ Utah Museum of Fine Arts | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Co-presented with the Utah Film Center. Additional support provided by CUAC and Modern West Fine Art.

Tim’s Vermeer
A Penn and Teller Film
80 min | 2013 | USA | Rated PG-13
Screens in English and Dutch with English subtitles.

Tim Jenison, a Texas-based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: how did seventeenth-century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring) 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. Spanning eight years, Jenison’s adventure takes him to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces; on a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney; and even to Buckingham Palace to see a Vermeer masterpiece in the Queen’s collection.

Monk with a Camera
90 min | 2014 | USA/France/Italy/India | Not rated
Directed by Tina Mascara and Guido Santi

Monk with a Camera chronicles the life and spiritual quest of Nicholas (Nicky) Vreeland. The son of a United States ambassador, grandson of legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, and a photographer by trade, Nicky left his privileged life behind to follow his true calling—becoming a Buddhist monk. He moved to India, cutting his ties with society, photography, and his pleasure-filled world, to live in a monastery with no running water or electricity. There he spent the next fourteen years studying to become a monk. Then, in one of life’s beautiful twists, Nicky returned to the worldly pursuit of photography in order to help his fellow monks rebuild their monastery, one of the most important monasteries of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

Beltracchi: The Art of Forgery
90 min | 2014 | Germany | Not rated
Directed by Anne Birkenstock

This mesmerizing, thought-provoking, yet surprisingly amusing documentary chronicles the life and times of Wolfgang Beltracchi, who tricked the international art world for nearly forty years by forging and selling paintings of early twentieth-century masters. Beltracchi was a larger-than-life personality who was responsible for the biggest art forgery scandal of the postwar era.
