Finding Vivian Maier

A very interesting documentary about Maier, who spent years photographing on the streets (primarily of Chicago), and whose work has only recently been discovered. The doc is written by John Maloof, who also discovered much of her work in a locker, and subsequently owns most of her negatives. The doc is even more interesting for the questions the film doesn't attempt to answer: like gender bias in the arts, issues of ownership, editing choices,etc.
