Cats of MirikitaniDVD
Homelessness, WWII Japanese-American internment camps, and 9/11 take center stage in a documentary spotlighting an unusual conflation of social concerns. After the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, filmmaker Linda Hattendorf takes in elderly Japanese artist Jimmy Mirikitani, displaced from his "home" on the streets near Ground Zero. News of Muslims facing race-based reprisals causes Mirikitani to reflect on ordeals he suffered decades earlier. 74 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; art gallery; deleted scenes; theatrical trailer.
