Tyrus Wong: Brushstrokes in Hollywood

TYRUS is the first in-depth portrait of the art, life, and enduring impact of Tyrus Wong. The film takes the audience on a remarkable journey — from his birthplace of Guangzhou, China in 1910 to the boarding houses of LA’s old Chinatown and the studios of the Golden Age of Hollywood. The film explores his formative years as a young WPA artist and the influence of Sung Dynasty art on his work. At a 102, Tyrus continues to live the life of an artist. We see him today, still vibrant, flying his magnificent creations high above the Pacific Ocean — the same waters he crossed as a young boy over 90 years ago.
