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.

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)
