Finding Vivian Maier Film

Finding Vivian Maier is the critically acclaimed documentary about a mysterious nanny, who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that were hidden in storage lockers and, discovered decades later, is now among the 20th century’s greatest photographers. Directed by John Maloof and Charlie Siskel, Maier’s strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never before seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.

Maier’s massive body of work would come to light when in 2007 her work was discovered at a local thrift auction house on Chicago’s Northwest Side. Currently, the work is being archived and cataloged for the enjoyment of others and for future generations. John Maloof is at the core of this project while Maier’s work is forging a renaissance in the art of Street Photography.

Funding for this film screening is provided by Tony & Leslie Rojas and Members of the Museum of Art. The Museum of Art is located on Wilson Road across from Martin Stadium in the Fine Arts Center on the WSU Pullman campus. Gallery hours are Monday – Saturday, 10 am. – 4 pm., open until 7 pm on Thursdays and closed on Sundays.
