A good movie

The Cats of Mirikitani. Filmmaker Linda Hattendorf becomes an integral part of the action in this heartfelt documentary about her efforts to help aging Japanese-American artist Jimmy Mirikitani get off the streets of New York City and make peace with his complicated past. As she and Jimmy sift for long-lost relatives and even revisit the internment camp where he was forced to spend several years during World War II, Hattendorf hauls her camera along to capture every moment.

We enjoyed this movie ~ Galen and I watched it last evening. Thanks, Amy, for recommending it.
I love his artwork.

I'll see if I can find it. It's a good weekend to sit in the air conditioning and watch a movie. Mimi

Sounds like my kind of movie. I've always been fascinated by the internment camps and the dispicable things we did to our fellow Americans. Thanks for the recommendation.
