The Cats of Mirikitani

Price: Free
This documentary by Linda Hattendorf focuses on Jimmy Mirikitani, an elderly homeless artist with Japanese roots. Living on the streets of Manhattan, Mirikitani sells his paintings, which are mostly of cats, but also include scenes of imprisonment that hark back to his days in an American internment camp during World War II. Hattendorf invites Mirikitani into her apartment and finds out more about his life during wartime, which shares some similarities with post-9/11 New York City.
