Teller, from the popular magical duo "Penn & Teller," is bringing magic to the big screen. 

In his feature documentary directorial debut, Teller gets behind the camera to solve a mystery in "Tim's Vermeer."

In the film Teller chronicles Tim Jenisen, an inventor who has joined the handful of artists and historians that have attempted to solve the Vermeer mystery. Jenison, after enormous thought, expense and effort, tried to recreate a Vermeer masterpiece with an optical technique he theorizes Vermeer could have used with the technology of the times.

Teller joins The Takeaway to discuss his latest film.
