Documentary Film Screening: Tyrus
There are no general tickets available at this time, but please check back during the first week of August if more tickets become available. There will be a stand-by line the night of the event, but please be advised that the stand-by line does not guarantee admission.
Legendary Disney artist Tyrus Wong (1910-2016) created a unique visual style for the 1942 animated film "Bambi", blending elements of classical Chinese painting with contemporary western art for a distinctive look that had never before been seen in an animated feature. His artistry influenced many subsequent films, as well. "Tyrus", Pamela Tom's tour-de-force documentary about the Guangzhou-born artist, explores the breathtaking scope of his work and his personal and professional journey navigating racial bigotry in 20th-century America. Seventeen years in the making, the film includes archival footage, illuminating interviews, and commentary from Wong himself, along with exquisite examples of his art. Tom will introduce the film and answer questions after the screening.
This event will be in Rothenberg Hall. Doors will open at 7:00 p.m.
The 1919 Cafe will also be open until 7:15 p.m. before the start of the event with a select variety of dinner options, desserts, beer, and wine in the new dining venue overlooking the gardens, just steps away from Rothenberg Hall.
