Jimmy Mirikitani is a feisty, homeless eighty-year-old Japanese-American artist who lost both family and friends to WWII internment camps and Hiroshima’s atomic bombing. When a filmmaker plucks him from the streets of post-9/11 New York, the two form an unlikely bond and embark on a journey to untangle the secrets of Jimmy’s past. Winner of the Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival, this funny and charming documentary showcases the power of art to bring peace in times of war, and reveals an artist reawakening to the world, like a cat opening its eyes after a decades-long nap.
