Prisbelønt dokumentar om den kinesiske maleren og illustratøren Tyrus Wong, som skapte det visuelle uttrykket i Disney-klassikeren Bambi, og som siden bidro kreativt til en lang rekke av Warner Brothers’ mest kjente filmer, som Key Largo, Rio Bravo, Rebel Without a Cause og The Wild Bunch.
Tyrus is a multi-award winning feature-length documentary film that tells the unlikely story of, then, 104-year old Chinese American artist Tyrus Wong, and how he overcame poverty and racism to become a celebrated modernist painter, Hollywood sketch artist, and Disney Legend for his groundbreaking work on the classic animated film, Bambi.
Tyrus examines the life and work of pioneering Chinese American artist Tyrus Wong. Beginning with his arrival to the immigration detention center at Angel Island in 1919, nine year old Tyrus would overcome a life of poverty, racism, and discrimination to become a renowned painter and Hollywood sketch artist. The film will show how the quiet beauty of Tyrus’s eastern influenced paintings caught the eye of Walt Disney and became the inspiration for the classic animated feature Bambi. For the next 25 years, Tyrus brought his artistry to Warner Brothers where his striking storyboards and set illustrations helped set the tone and drama for films such as The Sands of Iwo Jima, Rebel Without a Cause, William Goldman’s Harper and Sam Peckinpah’s The Wild Bunch.
Tyrus Wong passed away in 2016 at the glorious age of 106.
