Mysterious American nanny Vivian Maier (1926 – 2009) felt an irrepressible need to document her everyday life. To that end, she secretly took more than 100,000 photos, which she hid in her closets only to be discovered decades later. Now considered one of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, she found fame only after her death. This documentary reveals a life and an artistic practice as unique as they are fascinating, through photographs, films, and exclusive interviews with dozens of people who thought they knew her.
