Description:
 FINDING VIVIAN MAIER (2014)

Featuring Vivian Maier, John Maloof. Directed by Maloof and Charles Siskel. Unknown until after she died in 2009. Maier is now hailed as one of the great 20th century photographers. Think of her as Mary Poppins (well, not quite) with a camera which she used daily. She left behind hundreds of thousands of negatives and packing crates of photos at her death. These are powerful and touching images made during the 50s and 60s while she worked as a nanny for wealthy Chicago families. Presented as a tie-in with the current Flinn Gallery show, Contemporary Photographers. Oct. 30-Dec. 3. 83 min.
