Time:   83 minutes

Vivian Maier photographed over 150,000 street scenes in and around Chicago, Illinois in the second half of the 20th century. Though a meticulous artist with a strong, individual style, her work was never shown publicly and she died completely unknown. This documentary film traces the discovery of her work and the posthumous critical acclaim she has received.
