BANGKOK — See the work, life and death of a mysterious nanny-turned-street photographer who secretly took thousands of proto-selfies in the 1950s and 1960s.
Doc Club’s Thank You Night will celebrate the Documentary Club’s belated second birthday by screening the first movie it showed in 2014, “Finding Vivian Maier.” The 2013 documentary tells the story of an Illinois nanny who recorded her life over 100,000 negative photographs, mostly with a Rolleiflex camera.
The film documents Maier’s work, life and death through interviews with her acquaintances and her image collection discovered decades after by artist John Maloof. It won many awards and was nominated for an Academy Awards’ best documentary.
Along with the movie night will be street food stalls and craft beer bar. Bangkok-based street photographers Artyt Lerdrakmongkol and Rammy Narula will host a panel discussion after the screening.
Admission is free. The event starts at 6pm on Feb. 10 at The Jam Factory. The art space next to the Chao Phraya River can be reached by bus or taxi from BTS Krung Thonburi, or by a short walk from the Khlong San Pier.
