Documentary Film: Finding Vivian Maier
This 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.
The documentary will be shown at the Oriental Theater on Milwaukee’s east side on Friday, May 2.
