Tyrus: Documentary on Artist & Disney Legend

Once the oldest living Chinese-American artist at 106, Tyrus Wong was a modernist painter, muralist, greeting-card designer, famed kite maker and a certified Disney legend, acclaimed for his gorgeous and groundbreaking work on the 1942 animated film Bambi. As a storyboard artist for Warner Bros., he helped create the striking design for classic movies like The Sands of Iwo Jima, Rebel Without a Cause and Sam Peckinpah's The Wild Bunch. But to achieve those heights, he had to overcome a poverty-stricken childhood and rampant racism. Director Pamela Tom tells the remarkable story of Tyrus in this 2015 documentary feature, set to screen at Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, DC. There is a pre-show meet-and-greet and post-show panel discussion with the film's director, Pamela Tom.
