1942, Disney, 70 min, Dir: David Hand

Among the most beloved animated films of all time is this story of a young deer growing up to become the “Great Prince of the Forest” with the help of his friends, Thumper the rabbit and Flower the skunk. Though the film is family-friendly, source novel Bambi, A Life in the Woods was written for adults, and the book’s serious tone does come through in places (most famously in the off-screen death of Bambi’s mother).

2017, 78 min, USA, Dir: Pamela Tom

One of the most celebrated Chinese-American artists of the 20th century, Tyrus Wong was a production designer, illustrator, painter, muralist, ceramicist and lithographer perhaps best known for his haunting landscape backgrounds in the Disney classic BAMBI. Through interviews, archival footage and never-before-seen artwork, this beautiful documentary traces Wong’s life and career from his birth in China to the studios of the Golden Age of Hollywood to the beaches of Santa Monica, where the centenarian loved to fly his colorful, handmade kites.
