Tyrus

Tyrus is an award-winning documentary film about the life, art, and enduring impact of American painter and Disney legend, Tyrus Wong. From his birthplace in Guangzhou, China to the studios of old Hollywood, the film shows how Wong overcame a life of poverty and racism to become a successful modern artist, Hollywood motion picture illustrator, and Disney legend for his groundbreaking work on the classic animated film, Bambi. While the film tells the story of a remarkable artist and individual, it also sheds light on the dramatic and untold story of the Chinese Americans in the 20th century.
