- Who was Vivian Maier? A mysterious and private woman who worked as a nanny for forty years? Or was she the 20th century's greatest street photographer? The answer is simple: she was both. Finding Vivian Maier delves into the recent discovery of this groundbreaking artist, who for years had been wholly unknown to the art world, but has since taken it by storm. It follows John Maloof, an amateur historian who bought over 100,000 negatives of Maier's work by chance at an auction, as he crusades to put this prolific photographer in the history books. In this documentary, 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. Through a retrospective look at Maier's life, Maloof creates a stunning film that provides firsthand insight into the mind of an almost-forgotten genius.
