To art lovers, Tyrus Wong was a renowned painter who once exhibited with Picasso and Matisse. To film buffs, he’s the visual genius behind such classic films as Bambi and Rebel Without a Cause. To Southern California beach-goers, he’s the innovative kite designer whose colorful creations fill the sky. To the Chinese in America, he’s a pioneer. And to a filmmaker, he’s the kind of subject one dreams of — talented, determined, funny, and wise.

“Tyrus’s mesmerizing story will have longevity just like the remarkable artist himself.” – YNOT at the Movies

American Masters: Tyrus shows how he overcame a life of poverty and racism to become a celebrated painter who once exhibited with Picasso and Matisse, a Hollywood sketch artist, and ‘Disney Legend’.” – Thirteen
