Most of us live on food and water. The inventor Tim Jenison seems fueled by insatiable curiosity. He begins to wonder: How could the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer create such photorealistic works? Did he have help from mirrors? If so, could a regular Joe (or Tim), without any training, make a beautiful painting? His deep, myopic dive into optics and art is recorded by the legendary Penn Jilette (who produces) and Teller (who directs). TIM’S VERMEER simultaneously serves as a riveting personal journey, an inspiring exploration of creativity and a provocative “what is art” argument. It’s also the most fun than you’ll have watching a documentary this year. (U.S., 2013, 80m)
Physicist-turned filmmaker Mark Levinson trained his cameras on the Large Hadron Collider, the largest science experiment in history. This 17-mile long tunnel on the French-Swiss border, with immense data collection systems, is designed and operated with 10,000 scientists and engineers from 150 countries to replicate the instant after the Big Bang. What will we learn about the atom...and life itself? With energy and unfolding thrills, plus wonderfully easy to-grasp graphics and fantastic subjects, this film makes the complex matters at hand exciting and easy to understand.

This wild and poetic epic by Lars von Trier (MELANCHOLIA, DOGVILLE) follows a tale of sexual insatiability, from birth to the age of 50, told by a woman (Charlotte Gainsbourg) to an old, charming bachelor, Seligman (Stellan Skarsgård), who has found her beaten up in an alley. As he cares for her wounds, he listens intently as she tells the intensely layered story of a life of climax and obsession. With Shia La Boeuf, Willem Dafoe, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater and Jamie Bell. (Denmark, 2014, 118m, DCP, Magnolia)

Land Arts of the American West, at the University of New Mexico, is an ongoing experiment in radical interdisciplinary arts pedagogy, with field based research and practice taking place throughout the American Southwest. This program emphasizes direct physical engagement within a full range of human interventions in the landscape, from pre-contact Native American architecture, rock paintings and petroglyphs to contemporary art, federal infrastructure, US military installations, ecological niches, and land use structures across the West. CCA will present a culmination of works from the 2012 Land Arts program, ranging from two-dimensional, sculptural, installation, multi-media, and performance based projects, inducing an interdisciplinary play of research and practice across place.
Artists include: Lea Andersson, Eric Cook, Katelyn Deluca, Marne Elmore, Bill Gilbert, Jeanette Hart-Mann, Kb Jones, Cecilia McKinnon, Jeff Nibert, Heike Qualitz, Eso Robinson, Emily Vosburgh, and Amelia Zaraftis with Armando Carlos, Chrissie Orr and Roberto Salas.
