FINDING VIVIAN MAIER



You may remember quite some time back that I published a post about the street photographer 
Viven Maier & her amazing story. 
If you don't remember you can check it out here.  If you have been as fascinated (or now find yourself as fascinated) as I have been, you will probably want to know about the film
Finding Viven Maier.


The film is a documentary tracing the life of Viven Maier & the remarkable discovery of this unknown photographers's astounding collection of work. It  made its debut at the DOC NYC Festival in New York in 2013 & has made the rounds of other film festivals both nationally & internationally. Now at long last it will be opening in theaters in the US at the end of March.
I have been waiting with great anticipation for this film to come out & cannot wait to see it.
You can view a trailer below.



A list of play dates & locations has been listed on the Viven Maier Facebook page, where others will hopefully be added.  I am posting it below, & it looks like Atlanta is the closest place for me to view it, unless I find myself back in Boston in April. 


Please, let me know if any of you share my interest & are hoping to have a chance to see this film.

  1. I checked out the post in which you featured her works and it's just incredible! Kudos to you for highlighting it in your blog, works like these are treasures and people like Viven an enigma. I am so glad to hear that her works have been preserved and a documentary will be out very soon. I hope the documentary lives up to your expectations.

    1. I am thinking Atlanta is my closest location. I have family there so it could be a fun reason to visit.

  4. This, of course, will never come to my little town. But if we are very lucky PBS will pick it up for wider broadcast. Such amazing photography and the story behind it. How I'd love to see it on the big screen!

  8. I'd love to see it but will have to pin my hopes on PBS also….doesn't look like it will be showing any where near me. I've seen a short program on her…..possibly on the Ovation Channel.
