Meet Finding Vivian Maier's Charlie Siskel

Co-director comes to Landmark La Jolla Village Cinemas.

Movie

Finding Vivian Maier *****

thumbnail

Not knowing the box he bid on contained the negatives of an uncharted street photographer whose pictures would later become his own private money-spinner, geeky Chicago real estate agent John Maloof hit artistic and financial paydirt after essentially purchasing a stranger’s life at auction. Vivian Maier, an eccentric serial nanny on the city’s wealthy North Shore, was possessed with a Rolleiflex, an “authentic eye,” a faux French accent, and a pronounced dark side. Maier, who hated printing photographs, refused to show her work. In addition to unraveling Maier’s life in pictures, Maloof and co-director Charlie Siskel shine a compassionate light on the reclusive photog’s personal life. After setting the scene, Maloof wisely disappears into the background, allowing Vivian’s backstory to be told through interviews with the families she tended to. Billed as a documentary, it’s unlikely we’ll find a better suspense mystery this year than <em>Finding Vivian Maier</em>.

Charlie Siskel — who, along with John Maloof, produced and directed the documentary Finding Vivian Maier — will stop by the Landmark La Jolla Village Cinemas this weekend for a pair of audience Q & As.

For those unfamiliar with the name Vivian Maier, join the club. It wasn’t until a few years back when Maloof purchased a box of her negatives at auction (sight-unseen) that the now heralded street photographer’s star began to rise.

Finding Vivian Maier: Official US Trailer

With tens of thousands of photos to guide them, Maloof and Siskel clone the life of the secretive serial nanny, blessed with an “authentic eye,” through her art. It’s a film that never fails to fascinate as we sit in bewilderment, eavesdropping on their discovery.

Charlie Siskel will be at the La Jolla Village Cinemas this Saturday, April 19, after the 7:30 pm show, and to introduce the 9:40 pm show. Even if you can’t get out this weekend to meet him, don’t miss the movie.
