New Documentary “Tyrus” coming to American Masters

Tyrus, a documentary about recently deceased Bambi artist Tyrus Wong, will premiere on American Masters this summer on PBS.

The film is an in-depth portrait of the art, life and enduring impact of Tyrus Wong, taking viewers on a journey from his birthplace in Guangzhou, China in 1910, to the boarding houses of LA’s old Chinatown and the studios of the Golden Age of Hollywood. Audiences may recognize Wong for his art exhibitions with Pablo Picasso, or for his visual work on Bambi and Rebel Without a Cause.
