Official Selection: Toronto International Film Festival, Berlin International Film Festival
Straight from its successful World Premiere at TIFF, Global Visions and GURU Digital Arts College are proud to present the Edmonton premiere of this highly-acclaimed new documentary about one of the world’s most mysterious – and little-known – photographers.
Vivian Maier’s photos were seemingly destined for obscurity, lost among the clutter of the countless objects she’d collected throughout her life. Instead these images have shook the world of street photography and irrevocably changed the life of the man who brought them to the public eye.
This film brings to life the interesting turns and travails of the improbable saga of John Maloof’s discovery of Vivian Maier, unraveling this mysterious tale through her documentary films, photographs, odd collections and personal accounts from the people that knew Vivian.
What started as a blog to show her work quickly became a viral sensation in the photography world. Photos destined for the trash heap now line gallery exhibitions, a forthcoming book, and this documentary film.
Be among the first to see the film that has critics and festival audiences everywhere raving!
Saturday, March 1st @ 7:00pm – Metro Cinema at the Garneau
