There is much healing in “The Barefoot Artist,” Glenn Holsten and Daniel

Traub’s fascinating documentary portrait of the artist Lily Yeh. Ms. Yeh is

also what you might call a global community organizer: She has led

residents in blighted areas in creating colorful structures and sites: a school

in Beijing, a memorial to those killed in Rwanda in 1994, a meditation

garden in India, a center for the arts in North Philadelphia. Now in her 70s,

Ms. Yeh, who runs the nonprofit Barefoot Artists, is a tireless believer in

using art to soothe deep wounds.
