Finding Vivian Maier
PRESENTED BY MELBOURNE FESTIVAL
DIRECTED BY JOHN MALOOF & CHARLIE SISKEL
The photographer: Vivian Maier, a secretive and eccentric nanny who over the course of her life took tens of thousands of photos of everyday Chicago – and showed them to no one. Finding Vivian Maier follows Maloof as he embarks on a quest to reveal the woman behind the Rolleiflex camera. Part retrospective, part detective story, Finding Vivian Maier is a touching portrait of a woman haunted by her past. For a contemporary age obsessed with self-documentation via all forms of technology, Vivian Maier was a pioneer.
