Join Oscar-winning animator, animation historian, author, teacher and lecturer John Canemaker for a fascinating talk on the creation of Bambi, our Centerpiece Film!

Canemaker presents a profusely illustrated analysis of the art and life of Tyrus Wong (1910–2016), whose unique contributions to the art direction and visualization of Walt Disney’s animated film classic Bambi (1942) were profoundly influential not only to Walt Disney’s classic film, but to the art of animation as well.

Followed by a guided tour of the Marsden Hartley’s Maine exhibition with Lunder Curator Beth Finch.

This screening is part of the Maine International Film Festival and is sponsored by Larry & Kim Sterrs. This event is free and open to the public.
