The beauty of life is painted remarkably onto the screen through the incredible palette of the 105 years-young Tyrus Wong. The film takes the viewer into the world of a Chinese immigrant to the USA who not only overcame prejudice, but persevered to become one of the most culturally relevant artists today. As an artist in Hollywood, Wong inspired Walt Disney and helped bring us the delicate, majestic beauty of Bambi. Director Pamela Tom carefully weaves interviews with best-selling author LISA SEE, Hollywood film historian JOE MUSSO, art curator SONIA MAK, studio animation notable DON HAHN (who also is executive producer), and many more, alongside interviews with Wong’s family to give a rare, candid look at this unique man for our time. Take a visual walk through this gallery of a career that is at once touchingly memorable and of the moment.
