FINDING VIVIAN MAIER: Academy Award Best Documentary Feature Shortlist / MoMA Screening

Academy Award Best Documentary Feature Shortlist!
Directors: John Maloof, Charlie Siskel. Producer: Jeff Garlin

The Academy's documentary shortlist includes FINDING VIVIAN MAIER, directed by John Maloof and  Charlie Siskel, now considered a competitive frontrunner in this race! 

"In FINDING VIVIAN MAIER, the film unfolds like a detective story, Maloof and filmmaker Charlie Siskel reveal Maier’s mysterious life as a nanny and a loner through the recollections of her various employers and their children, and as other details of her past come to light. Through the reconstruction of a large portion of Maier’s collection of over 100,000 photographs and interviews with other well-known American street photographers and collectors, the film challenges our notions of the artist and the creative act, and how art is made and marketed. This is Maloof's and Siskel's remarkable directorial debut.

I've been following the discovery of Vivan Maier from the beginning and to be able to see the documentary and learn more about her gave me a better understanding of the person behind the camera.

Big thanks go out to #DELTA for showing it on my flight to Europe, and of course to John Maloof for sharing his discovery with the world.

Three thumbs up and please make sure you check out the screening at #MOMA!
