Finding Vivian Maier

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

Who is Vivian Maier? Vivian Maier was a mysterious nanny who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that went unseen during her lifetime. Now she is widely considered one of the 20th century’s greatest street photographers. Since buying her work by chance at auction, amateur historian John Maloof has crusaded to put this prolific photographer in the history books. Maier’s strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never-before-seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her….but really had no idea…This film about her life and art is as amazingly surprising as her photographs themselves. Unrated. 83 Min.
