Behind The Documentary: Tyrus Wong

Throughout the legend's 106 year-long life, Tyrus Wong tried many different roles in the art world, including film production illustrator, painter, muralist, and lithographer, designer, and even kite maker. His Chinese identity didn’t limit him when pursuing his dreams to work in the creative industry. We interviewed the Chinese American film maker Pamela Tom who was inspired by Tyrus's life.
