XLrator Media will release QUEEN MIMI in theaters on April 15th.
If you live in Santa Monica or the Los Angeles area, you have probably heard of MIMI. Known for living in a local laundromat in Santa Monica, her celeb friends include Zach Galifianakis and Renee Zellweger. They love her for her charm and quick witted personality. She’s made such an impact on their lives that Zach Galifianakis has provided her with her own apartment and mobile phone and Renee Zellweger even furnished her apartment. Her new found fame has led to features in Entertainment Weekly, Buzzfeed and other outlets to name a few.
First time director Yaniv Rokah was a barista at a local coffee shop that Mimi would often frequent. After becoming fast friends and inspired by her story, Rokah decided to make the documentary to explore why Mimi has been so influential to so many lives and who she really is.
