CALLERI: Something remembered is the theme of two new movies


Niagara Gazette — Maloof, and his co-director Charlie Siskel, have made an engaging movie that details Maloof’s efforts to bring Maier’s now highly-acclaimed photographs to the public. The filmmakers went to France to explore Maier’s childhood and to talk to her relatives.

Children she raised are interviewed, as are some of their parents, including talk show host Phil Donahue.

From the 1960s to the 1990s, Maier, with her beloved Rolleiflex camera on hand, quietly and unobtrusively chronicled what she saw on the streets of Chicago. The movie about her is not only fascinating, but it’s also a remarkable study of obsession.
