FINDING VIVIAN MAIER

2014 Alumni

Expected to Attend: John Maloof, Charlie Siskel

When Vivian Maier died in 2009 at age 83, she left behind more than 100,000 negatives of her street photography—images that she’d scarcely shared with anyone. Acquiring a box of her photos at a storage auction, John Maloof became obsessed and set out to tell her story, teaming with collaborator Charlie Siskel. As New York Times critic Manohla Dargis wrote, the film delivers “an exciting electric current of discovery.” Courtesy of Sundance Selects. 

The director is expected to be in person for both screenings.

DOC NYC will admit AMPAS members and a guest to any film screening in the festival’s “Short List” section, space permitting. AMPAS members will need to present their membership card at the box office to claim a ticket.
