5.0 out of 5 stars A profound human document, 28 July 2009

This review is from: Cats of Mirikitani [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
A Japanese American, Jimmy Mirikitani who survives in the streets of Manhattan by selling his paintings (cats) to by-passers for a few dollars, attracts the attention of the director of this movie, Linda Hattendorf.
She wants to know his identity, his past and why he is surviving in such a dreadful manner.
She discovers that the roots for his depressing situation were laid out decades ago by the racial treatment of people from oriental origin during WW II in the US. Considered as potential enemies and spies, they were incarcerated in special internment camps. Jimmy Mirikitani never recovered from this ordeal after the war.
This documentary is edited like a thriller, with the director in the role of a true detective who unravels all the secrets of the main character's life puzzle.
Linda Hattendorf has made a most remarkable documentary revealing some nearly undetectable ravages provoked by war on innocent populations.
A must see.
