"Make Art not War! " is Jimmy Mirikitani's motto.  Blending beauty and humor with tragedy and loss, THE CATS OF MIRIKITANI is an intimate exploration of the lingering wounds of war and the healing power of art.  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.   This heart-warming affirmation of humanity that appeals to all lovers of peace, art, and cats won the Audience Award at its premiere in the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival and went on to win Best Documentary and Audience Awards in more than 20 festivals around the world.
