Documentary

This utterly intriguing documentary shuttles from New York to France to Chicago as it traces the life story of the late Vivian Maier, a career nanny whose previously unknown cache of 100,000 photographs has earned her a posthumous reputation as one of America’s most accomplished and insightful street photographers. Her exquisite black-and-white pictures recall Cartier-Bresson in their luminous immediacy; but she never told anyone of her passion and was hugely secretive about herself, her life and her work. An intimately compelling portrait of a purist and a true artist who seemed to want only to see, and not to be seen.

_“A fascinating documentary about the chance discovery of the work of an eccentric talent” _*** Mark Kermode, Observer
