“Finding Vivian Maier”
Fall Film Festival
Sunday, October 5 – 3:00 p.m.
A documentary on the late Vivian Maier, a nanny whose previously unknown cache of 100,000 photographs earned her a posthumous reputation as one the most accomplished street photographers. 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. More connect-the-dots detective thriller than traditional documentary, John Maloof and Charlie Siskel’s revelatory riddle of a film unmasks a brilliant photographer who hid in plain sight for decades working as an eccentric French nanny. “Vivian Maier is a great Chicago story. And what she did for, and with, the faces, neighborhoods and character of mid-20th century Chicago deserves comparison to what Robert Frank accomplished, in a wider format, with The Americans.” – Chicago Tribune. Unrated (PG equivalent). 83 minutes.
