Finding Vivian Maier: Cedar Lee/Lemon Grass

Rotten Tomatoes: 96%

"This may be the most pleasurable 83 minutes you will spend in a theater this year"--Colin Covert

This is a the story of a nanny who was a very gifted photographer. This film shows her photographs and also explores why she chose to keep her body of work private during her lifetime.

 

6:00 PM Dinner before movie at Stone Oven on Lee Road


7:15 PM MOVIE at Cedar Lee (approximate time)

Meet us in the lobby ahead of time, look for us in the theater, or catch up with us near the outer doors after the film.

9:15PM DINNER/DISCUSSION at Lemon Grass (after the movie)

Just in case you don't connect with the group after the film, proceed over to the restaurant and ask to sit at the "Movie Group" table.

We will take a short walk to the restaurant.

Synopsis:

A mysterious nanny, who secretly took over 100,000 photographs that were hidden in storage lockers and discovered decades later, is now considered among the 20th century's greatest photographers. Maier's strange and riveting life and art are revealed through never before seen photographs, films, and interviews with dozens who thought they knew her. An exhibition of Maier's work is on display in November at New York's Howard Greenberg Gallery.
