Finding Vivian Maier
Documentary / English
The gripping investigation of the life of a brilliant photographer.
A winning bid on a box of photographic negatives at a Chicago auctionhouse leads to the discovery of the massive body of work of a recently deceased, hitherto completely unknown photographer named Vivian Maier. In this thrilling and fascinating film, John Maloof, the lucky buyer of the treasure trove, follows the traces of the French-born Maier, who lived secretively in the United States as a professional nanny. A combination detective story, complex psychological portrait, and in-depth study of what makes great photography great. [PG]
