We Remember Mirikitani
Dir: Masa / Japan / 2016 / 21 min

Take a trip through time with Jimmy Mirikitani. Seeing his paintings and photographs, hearing testimonies from the people around him, we uncover the man’s unknown personal history. His work was included in “The Art of Gaman”—a traveling exhibition highlighting art and craft objects made by incarcerated Japanese Americans in wartime concentration camps. The show toured across America and Japan.
