March 17 – Malden
Reads film screening
of “Tyrus”
on’t miss a special Malden
Reads screening of the film
“Tyrus” on Friday, March 17 at
7:00 p.m. at the Malden Se-
nior Community Center. The
film celebrates the life and
achievements of a pioneer-
ing Chinese-American artist,
Tyrus Wong, and is cospon-
sored by the Chinese Cultur-
al Connection as part of their
East Meets West cultural dia-
logue program.
Wong, who came to the
United States with his father
at the age of nine in 1920, was
the original illustrator for the
Disney movie “Bambi.” The
beautifully textured brush
strokes of the settings for the
animated film were based on
original paintings that Wong
produced in his time off while
working at an entry-level job
as an animator at Disney. Walt
Disney choseWong’s art as the
basis for the look of “Bambi,”
and all the artists who worked
on the filmwere trained to im-
itateWong’s style.
Wong was let go from his
job at Disney before “Bam-
bi” was even finished, and he
went on to work for 26 years
at Warner Brothers, creating
the looks for dozens of films,
including “Around the World
in Eighty Days.” In addition to
being a painter, he was a mu-
ralist, ceramicist, lithographer,
designer and kite maker. For a
while he worked for Hallmark
creating Christmas cards, one
of which sold over a million
copies. For the last 30 years
of his life, he became local-
ly famous, especially on the
beaches around Santa Barba-
ra, for his flying works of art –
his breathtakingly beautiful
kites. Wong died last Decem-
ber at the age of 106.
The documentary picks up
on many of the themes of this
year ’s Malden Reads book
choice, “A Man Called Ove”
by Fredrik Backman, a nov-
el about an older man who
finds support in his neighbor-
hood and an unlikely group of
people. The two works share
themes of resilience, openness
and the power of diversity. The
filmscreeningwill followed by
a discussion.
