In 2007, filmmaker and amateur historian John Maloof unearthed a cache of over 100,000 undeveloped films and negatives at a Chicago auction house. The collection was eventually traced to Vivian Maier, a mysterious career nanny whose extraordinary body of work has since earned her the reputation as one of America’s most accomplished and insightful street photographers. In this riveting documentary, John Maloof and Charlie Siskel piece together Maier’s remarkable life and art through never before seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her.
