Coming from the world of magic into another form of attraction, Penn Jillette and Raymond Teller debuted their first feature film, Tim’s Vermeer, on the fall festival circuit to instant acclaim and today brings the first trailer. With Penn serving as producer and Teller taking on helming duties, the documentary tracks their quest to uncover one legendary artist’s ability to create picture-perfect paintings.
While anyone with a basic understanding of Photoshop can do such an activity in today’s age, the duo are looking at Dutch master Johannes Vermeer and his 17th-century works of art.

Tim’s Vermeer opens on January 31st, 2014.
