Cats of Mirikitani A film by Linda Hattendorf

Eighty-year-old Jimmy Mirikitani survived the trauma of WWII internment camps, Hiroshima, and homelessness by creating art. But when 9/11 threatens his life on the New York City streets and a local filmmaker brings him to her home, the two embark on a journey to confront Jimmy's painful past. An intimate exploration of the lingering wounds of war and the healing powers of friendship and art, this film has won awards at some 20 festivals, including prizes at Tribeca in New York, Tokyo, Paris, Washington D.C., Quito, Bologna, Durban, Galway, Seoul, and Lyon.
